My explorer uncle, A E Filby, drove this 1922 Austin Twenty across Africa. He faced many hazards, including traversing the Sahara Desert, river crossings and close encounters with wild animals. In Kenya he contracted malaria and his dog was eaten by a leopard. This car is on display at the National Motor Museum, Beaulieu.
