Jim Davidson OBE, who founded The British Forces Foundation a decade ago, signed the car surrounded by family as Lap of Honour heads ever closer to the Bonhams auction at The Goodwood Festival of Speed on 3rd July 2009.

Having personally clocked up hundreds of thousands of miles over the years through his commitment to entertaining the troops, Jim has also been responsible for encouraging many other stars to give up their time and talent to the cause of boosting morale.

His thoughtful words to the troops: "Our boys put the ‘Great’ in Britain."
