Default John Forsey RIP

I Heard today that John (Blackpowder44) died yesterday. I haven't noticed him on the forum for a while, but last time I was at his place a few months back, he still had his UC MK2* (One of the ones that was taken brand new from a crate)

I'll miss his long phone calls about all and nothing!! Ron

Very sad news. I first met John a couple of years back when I looked at buying his Carrier. He was more than happy to show me around his collection and regale me with all the places he had driven his Jeep around Europe. He inspired me to get out and use mine more.

Default RIP John "Blackpowder" Forsey

Ron,

Thanks for letting us know. I am saddened to hear about John's passing. I did not know him personally, but I do know he had a large collection of vehicles taken over from Bapty's film hire used in A Bridge Too Far. This included the ex-Bart Vanderveen C8A HUA, which has since passed through the hands of various MLU members.

He was last active on MLU in June 2018 and I have now set his profile to "RIP". He has now joined the ranks of other reputable MLU members who are resting in peace.

Hanno
