I came across this web page when searching for information on Wallasey and have some informationthat that might help with compiling a club history if that is your intent.
I was brought up in Wallasey and lived on Belgrave Street from 1939 to 1963 when I was married and moved to Neston. Much of what I know about the club came from my grandfather who raised me after my dad remarried. My father was John Crester Pringle, known to his friends as Cres, and he was a good friend of Les Graham and was involved with the early formation of the Wallasey MC. Like Les, my dad raced and I have just received a picture of him on his OEC which my brother John has just discovered. My grandfather often told tales of my dad’s racing. He told me the bike was an OEC with a V-Twin JAP engine. He would complain that the bike was eventually damaged from too much racing on sand. He told me that dad and some of his cronies marked a measured mile on Leasowe Road at about 4:00 a.m. one morning to see if dad could get the OEC to exceed 100 mph. I believe that it did!
As a schoolboy I was a big fan of Les Graham, and the only time I was late for school (Wirral Grammar School) was because I was listening to the senior TT and Les was leading on the AJS Twin Porcupine. He broke down about three miles from the finish – it spoiled my day. The only good news was that I was so late that the school monitors had left their posts.
When Les Graham was killed on his MV Augusta in the Isle of Man I was sent down to his family
