I never knew that!

Ronnie Cray on holiday in his MGB Roadster.
Fours crays in the MGB Roadster.
there anyone looking? No? Now people, keep this under your hat,
I'll whisper in case others are earwigging. Some parochial newspaper,
I think its called the Daily Mail, reported that Ronnie
Kray, one of the famous criminal twins, was once photographed
in an MGB. The left-hand drive, primrose MGB Roadster was registered
GG 22490. It sports a radio aerial and an early type of wing
mirror on the drivers door. The photo is thought to have
been taken, in the 1960s whilst Ron was on holiday. He is known
to have travelled to France, Greece and Spain. Any ideas which
country? Does the car survive or was it murdered?
There is another photo, this time in poor quality black &
white of four people in the same car, but from a slightly different
angle. It is captioned "Charlie Kray, Reggie Kray, Ronnie
Kray and Dolly Kray out in the country". Now why are the
pictures so similar but different? Is it a fake? I don't suppose
we will ever know. Don't forget I said mum's the word. Now where
did I put my disguise . . . . . . . I'm off!
