The Wembley Sports was a Bakelite camera made in England by Truvox, introduced in 1950. It took 8 6x9cm images on 120 film. The lens screwed into the body for transport, and extended for picture taking, with four click stops for focus zones.

The Arti-Six is a very similar camera, as is the Grand Manitou - a French-labelled version.
