Mike (Boss) worked it out while i was visiting him - it is not that hard with the clues I have given. You just need to know your British motoring history.

Try a guess anyone....

Basie is close enough.

Fire pump engines were made by Coventry Climax, They produced a very light weight, high power pump engine named the Godiva, after Lady Godiva who rode naked through Coventry.

The motor racing fraternity quickly cottoned on to these nice engines, and the soon became F1 and F2 powerplants. The first SOHC Coventry Climax race engines have a round brass badge of Lady Godiva on the cam cover:
