Dear Sir,

One of our machines, a Gypsy Moth, VH-UIR has used Golden Shell Oil solely and the Oil has been changed at proper intervals, with the result that when the Machine came in for a general overhaul, after the Machine covered 35,000 miles, there was no necessity for replacements, and Bearings, etc, were found to be in perfect order, equal to any machines that have only done 50 hours running on other lubricating Oils.

I also wish to mention the fact that the Air Service Machines, using Siddeley Lynx Engines and your lubricating Oil, Golden Shell, have done 275 hours per Engine, covering 18,000 miles in the first month, at the cost of only one valve spring, and the Engines are in perfect order and condition.

Ia m,
Yours faithfully,
Technical Adviser
