Thanks for the reminder Geoff as I'd forgotten this was one. I know I'm getting old as I put to one side odd bits of broken 'ceramic' and iron slag that appears regularly in our garden, just in case they may be of historical value Cheesy.

Hear, hear.  Sad

Didn't know him, but it's always sad to lose a talented member of 'the industry'.......I can't be certain, but I'm wondering whether some of the Napoleonic conversions I'm doing at 30mm were originally made by him.....The style is VERY similar.

Wargaming is a relatively small community of like minded souls.   It is sad to lose any of our own

Our thoughts must be with his family and friends.

He really brought racing to life as frankly, most of the time it's a parade, rather than a race. IIRC he was a tank commander during the war. A sad loss.

Aye, very enthusiastic.

Not always the most observant though.

Distinctly remember him commentating on a car that was slowing down, saying something like "He's stopping! Maybe it's an electrical fault?". And we were sat on the sofa saying "Count the wheels, Murray!" (i.e. one was missing . . .).

Not the only sports commentator that has that problem mind.
