Long-time Douglas enthusiast Jack Nelson passed away on Christmas Eve, just a few days after his 93rd birthday.
Jack spent a lifetime with old bikes and cars, and was particularly fond of British racing motorcycles of the vintage period. He had a splendid collection of Nortons, Rudges and Douglases in the shed together with his early 3-litre Bentley, but if pushed he would happily nominate Douglas as his pet passion. Many will remember Jack and his favourite bike: his superb TT Douglas.
Jack's funeral is this Friday, December 30, 10.30 AM, at St Mary's Church, Grimshaw St, Greensborough, Melbourne.
I'll miss him greatly.
