Dick Elleray is mentioned in Pigeon Post when they are trudging home to their new camp and a motor-car rushes past (PP 27). Peggy says ''That was Dick Elleray driving. Squashy Hat must have hired him for the day''. Perhaps a local motor garage hired out cars and drivers, a sort of taxi service.

Molly Blackett drives Rattletrap in PP, although in WH (WH9) Molly says that the doctor will drive Peggy and the others (except for Nancy!)around to the Jacksons and Dixons for quarantining, and later Molly arrives at Holly Howe in a hired car; no Rattletrap then! In PM (PM23,25) the GA gets Billy Lewthwaite to drive her in Rattletrap (Jim and Molly both drive her). Billy is used to driving with a yachting cap he used for chauferring, but he forgets his blue coat; he is obviously used to chauffering!
