    RIP Barry Moon

    Barry Moon passed away this morning. Used to enjoy racing with him in Leisuretime when he ran his red Mk2 Escort.

    Sad. Naturally enough, I knew Barry through Leisuretime/ERC and he was an upholsterer. We still have the bench seat squabs he made for us.

    Well known to the Austin Healey fraternity too.

    I don't have a pic to hand of Barry racing, but he was is the former owner of the Hillsy Hills Escort, pictured. I may have a pic taken by someone else and if so, will scan it and replace.

    Barry Moon - A Healey Guy too.

    Very Sad, knew Barry well and we went to Austin Healey events together.
    BMC BOY [ Ross Cammick ] knew him also, Barry and Ross with Reg Whittaker went to Manfeild in January - Ross told me it would be Barry's last trip
    - we were in touch a few months ago as a friend of ours had a friend visiting from Australia who knew Barry and had worked with Hazel, we put them in touch.

    RIP Barry
