Ripple Road, Dagenham, Essex. The team took the
nickname "Daggers" for obvious reasons. The track operated
1932-1939 when the second world war interrupted things! They
reopened and ran 1946-1947. I do not know if any efforts to
reopen came after closedown in 1947.
Fred Quick was a great name for a speedway rider and I
also like "Snowy" Blackman but surely he should have been known as
1936: Frank Hodgson. Frank was "King of
The Daggers" in those days.

6th August 1939. The Second World
War was just a few weeks away and speedway was put on hold whilst
we dealt with Hitler
