Footnotes

  • The following XXXXX lots are offered from the estate of the Late Derek Green (1933-2010)

    Many knew Derek, although would have assumed his interest was limited to a particular subject. The reality was quite different and his interests were many – from his love of flying during his early career to his later career with motor cars, motorcycles and antique furniture.

    After a mandatory spell of National Service and later as a Royal Navy Sea Fire and Sea Fury pilot, he continued his military service, taking permanent commission in the Fleet Air Arm. After 12 years service, 40 different aircraft, and nearly 3,000 sorties including serving in Korea and Suez, Derek then flew for BOAC, finally retiring in 1969.

    Having established himself as an antique furniture dealer, opening Cedar Antiques in Hartley Wintney, and along with his wife Sally, Derek built up a reputation as a respected dealer. And of course, Derek also had another passion – motoring.

    Owning a string of interesting and exotic motor cars including Bentley, Aston Martin, Jaguar, and the Meadows powered Lagonda and Invictas. Motorcycle interest was directed towards Douglas, Triumph and the Vincent Black Shadow. As with many, passion turned to business and he founded Cedar Classic Cars in 1986, in response to enquiries from friends looking for high-standard restorations.

    Derek will be sorely missed and Bonhams are privileged to be offering Part II of his motoring memorabilia collection for sale.
