London Fire Brigade despatch riders who are mainly recruited from speedway fans, train in the car park adjoining Wimbledon Stadium. The unit, which has since been depleted through the call for skilled workmen, is now to have a junior despatch riders section. Several juniors have proved so good that they have been promised speedway trials when the war is over.
