About Woolf 'Babe' Barnato

Woolf Barnato was born in 1895. In WW1 he enlisted in the army rising to the rank of Captain.

Woolf was physically imposing which gave rise to his ironic nickname 'Babe'. On reaching the age of 21, in 1916, he inherited vast wealth from his late father and was able to indulge in his love of motor racing. In 1926 he became the major shareholder in Bentley Motor Cars and an enthusiastic race of the marque as one of the famous "Bentley Boys".
