    Re: An obturity for Mark Eaton

    Thanks for the post Rory - and my condolences to yourself, Jasmine, Katherine and family. It's so sad to hear this news as it seems only a few weeks since we met at Shoreham Airport just before the Stoneleigh Show. I'd like to attend a memorial service so would be pleased to hear about this at the appropriate time. My sympathies to yourself and family.

    Rory, I was shocked, and very saddened to read the news of the passing of you farther, Mark.

    When I had just ordered my LB Kit back in 2014, Mark was putting build posts on the forum which I found extremely helpful, and was also prompted to message him with questions, some of which would have sounded a bit naive, which he never failed to answer promptly and with grace, although at that time I was very new to the forum.

    More recently, I did meet him, firstly in Tynemouth last year, and then again this year at Shap, when my wife and I sat and had breakfast with him talking about rallying in the 1970's and 80's and the mutual friends we had. He was a loverly, loverly man, I know you, your sister, and all the family will miss him dearly.

    My sincere condolences. there will be a big hole left for you all for a long time.

    Robin.

    Rory - I'm planning to be there - but since my car is not yet road-registered, without Strat.
