The Fordos Files

Hampshire is lucky to be the home county of one Mr Robert Ford, the celebrated SELOC diarist, artist and now it seems, historian.

Several months spent poring over transcipts, historical documents and microfiches has resulted in a stunning piece of research the likes of which the world has never seen - the true story of how Hampshire came to adopt the Red S as its emblem. This revelation turns accepted wisdom on its head, and caused Mr Wiki to contemplate quietly departing from the Lotus scene.

Verified by Hugh Trevor-Roper the Fordos files have been brought to you, despite great interest from rival Stern magazine, by the Hampshire section.

Presented in pictorial format so that interlopers from Sussex can follow the story, may we present the first of the Fordos Files.

I think you will find he lives in Wiltshire - but we won't hold that against him.
