We knew we were on the right track the moment we discovered this story in our Archives. We're keen to see if you're onboard! This is "The Girl Engine Driver: A Tale Of A Race With A Forest Fire" by W.D. Morris, first published in "The People's Friend" in 1916. Host Iain is joined by Marion, Tracey and Barry for a chat that begins with the benefits of an American story, and ends with emulating the late Fred Dibnah . . .
