Goods from these Countries were also Imported by 'FLASHPOINT' to England for onward Sales through-out the UK & Europe in the East, Far East and USA, Canada & West Indies in the West.
The 'FLASHPOINT' Logo actually took 18 months to design the correct geometric acceptable design in 1978 and thereafter all products were branded with that logo and the word
'FLASHPOINT' which were Registered as Trade Marks in 1981 in Italy, UK & Greece. The Word
'FLASHPOINT' has been marketed and advertised through-out the UK & Europe, including Eastern Europe and China since 1976 and thereby has Anterior Trade Mark use through-out those Domains and Territories since that date.

Our Company also sponsored the National Drag Racing Champion 'Russ Carpenter' too.
The Company Logo 'FLASHPOINT'
also appeared on that Fabulous Drag Racing (Legendary) Machine which Russ drove to so many successes in the UK & Europe.
In early 1997 our Company sponsored a young teacher from North London to fly out to Bangladesh for six months and assist the young children there to read & write and assist in their general education.
During her stay the young teacher wrote letters to our Company about her day to day experiences whilst working with the children and the local community.
We found this an extremely rewarding and very worthwhile cause to have supported.

In the late part of 1997 we again sponsored the 'SAHARAWAN DESERT PEOPLE' aid programme which was organised by PC Parker of The Royal Parks Police based in St. James Park London SW1.
A convoy of Land-Rovers and Water-Tanker vehicles departed from out-side The House of Commons in November 1997 with a police escort to the Channel Ferry Port where they boarded for France.
On dis-embarking in France they were again escorted by the motor-cycle gendarmerie right through to the Port of Marseille where the vehicles were loaded on board and transported across the
Mediterranean to North Africa and onto The Saharawan People in the Sahara Desert.
This too, for our Company was a very rewarding and deserving cause.
So, if one day you are ever driving across the Sahara Desert and come upon Land-Rovers etc. with
on, we assure you, you are not DREAMING or seeing a Mirage.
Checkout the Mirage to the right.
