10th March 1930 J. Galbraith, Esq., Armagh Road, Portadown, Northern Ireland - Dear Sir, In compliance with your request I have pleasure in sending you a copy of the R.A.C. map of the main roads of England and Wales showing Ministry of Transport numbers and intermediate mileages, etc., and I trust that it will be of service to you. At the same time I venture to enclose a booklet setting out the advantages to be derived from Associate-Membership of the R.A.C.  The service which the R.A.C. offers is specially designed to meet the needs of motor cyclists, whose interests are served by a Motor Cycle Department staffed by motor cyclists. The R.A.C. "Get You Home" Service again is the only safeguard against being stranded on the road. The annual subscription of 1 for Motor Cycle Associate-Membership, without entrance fee, included the free use of the Badge. I offer you a cordial invitation to join the Club and suggest that you fill in the form and send it to me with the subscription when I shall be pleased to send you the Badge and "Get You Home" vouchers, etc., forthwith. Yours faithfully, F. A. Armstrong, Secretary

Photograph by Mr. Murphy, Staff Motor News - J. B. Dunlop
Please return at your convenience. Sorry photo won't take the ink properly. The photo was taken by Mr. Murphy 2 or 3 years ago. I was standing in front of the Old Timers, assembled at Donnybrook, ready to lead them off. The steering centres shoot the ground a little in front of the perpendicular and it was the first safety I ever saw ridden hand off ridden by Johnny
