There's mention of Reville 'forgetting' things and it rings true because he doesn't seem to remember either the first lady of speedway Fay Taylor or the American driver Spike Rhiando who were active at Crystal Palace in 1934 and 1935.

Reville probably didn't say a lot about Fay Taylor or Spike Rhiando because they did very little racing at Crystal Palace where most of his action was in the first two seasons of midgets in this country. Taylor went to big cars on big circuits and Rhiando dabbled at Greenford and was also riding speedway quite a lot in East Anglia at this time.
After his initial burst onto the Australian scene, Reville did not do much after 1936/37. He never appeared after World War 11 at any speedway in Australia. Fay Taylour did much more and raced across Australia after the war racing with our best. But not too many rewards came her way, although she more than matched it with our guys.
