I was fortunate to meet the Gent on a couple of occasions and if ever I had a Hero he would be top of the list.

I had the good fortune of meeting Fred on many occasions,but the most memorable was at Cockermouth when he was demolishing the mill chimney there. I presented him with a framed photograph that I had taken of him at the previous year's Grappenhall rally when He was there with "ATLAS" . I'll never forget his reaction when he pulled that picture out of the bag.
