Description

This is from my personal collection which I am now disbanding.

Stanley Woods, Born 1903, Dublin, an Irish motorcycle racer famous for 29 motorcycle Grand Prix wins and winning the Isle of Man TT races 10 times in his career.
He began his racing career in 1921 and had his first TT race in 1922.
Velocette motorcycles were made by Veloce Ltd, in Hall Green, Birmingham, England.
From 1936 until his retirement from racing in 1939, Woods rode mainly for the Velocette factory winning the Junior TT 350cc in 1938 and 1939 and the Ulster Grand Prix in 1939 on his Vellocette 348cc KTT. The Velocette KTT was notable for having the first positive-stop foot gear change on a motorcycle.
Commandant Stanley Woods was credited with the task of training the first Irish Army 4 Cavalry Squadron's Motor Squadron personnel during The Emergency as the presidential Escort of Honour

His ability built him into a legend, but his modesty prevented him recognising it.
Stanley Woods passed away 28th july 1993.

Due to the delicate nature of the Cards and the numbers issued, these have become very scarce and hard to come by. This is in excellent
condition for its age.

Description: The Card is aprox 68mm x 36mm.
This set was issued
in 1939 by W.D. & H.O. Wills
"Wills's Cigaretes"
