  1. โ€˜Pervasive racismโ€™ blamed for failure to commemorate black and Asian troops https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-56840131
  2. Apparently in early days AA patrolmen would wave if there was a speed trap ahead but a patrolman was prosecuted so they got around that by using the no signal as the warning of a speed trap .. I think that there were still a couple of tries at prosecuting patrolmen for using the no salute or wave as a warning of a speed trap
  3. That was more early 1900s until the 1920s by the 1930s there was co-operation between the AA and RAC. The RAC was a members.
