Biography: Age "over 21", Albert Moule comes from Dudley, and made his first appearance in the T.T. in 1948 after a distinguished "Manx" career during which he was three times a member of the winning team. He holds eight M.G.P. replicas, his best "Manx" year being 1947, when he was second in the Junior and third in the Senior. On his first appearance in the International races in 1948 he finished 17th on a Norton in the Junior to win a replica. He was lying sixth when he retired on the last lap of the Senior event.

In 1949 he was 21st in the Senior T.T., sixth in the 350 class of the North-West "200" and sixth again in the Brooklands "100" at Silverstone. He rode Nortons in both the Junior and Senior races of the 1959 T.T. He was 21st in the Junior at a speed of 78.72 m.p.h. to win a first-class replica, and 17th in the Senior to win a second-class replica. Albert also had a successful time as a member of the "Continental Circus" that season.

In 1951 he was eighth in the 350 c.c. class of the North West "200", eleventh in the Junior T.T., eighth in the Senior T.T., averaging 84.60 m.p.h, on a Norton to win a second-class replica, and eighth yet again in the 500 c.c. event of the Ulster Grand Prix, winning the War Memorial Trophy.

In 1952 he was eleventh in the Junior just missing a Silver Replica, and ninth in the Senior, well in Silver Replica time.

He relired in the 1953 Junior T.T., and crashed heavily in the 125 c.c. (when his Mondial "came apart at the seams"), suffering back injuries which prevented him from riding in the Senior.

He finished in both Junior and Senior races in 1954, in 36th and 26th places respectively, collecting two Bronze Replicas.

Riding B.S.As in 1955 he was 46th in the Junior T.T. and 28th in the Senior. In 1956 he was a non-starter in the Junior, but finished 29th in the Senior on a Norton. In 1957 he was 43rd in the Junior (Bronze Replica), but retired in the second lap of the Senior.

In 1958 he retired in the Junior, but finished 38th in the Senior with a Bronze Replica; in 1959 his luck was dead out, for he retired in both races, but last year, although he did not finish in the Junior he came home 37th in the Senior at 83.06 m.p.h. He is entered for this year's races by the colmore Depot, of Birmingham. (TT Special, 16 June 1961, p. 6)
