Sad news that Bob Hicks, of Caravelle fame, has died. http://www.brdc.co.u...cks-1930---2020

 

A full obituary is on the BRDC (link above)

 

I can't recall the year (maybe Richard Hinton - RTH can) but Bob came to at least one of the TNF film shows - I think it might've been the one that Bob Dance was at  - and he was a very pleasant chap and enthusiastic about the film shows.

 

We all need some good news right now, sorry to make the TNF a yet darker place.  :cry:

Oh that is very sad news - for many years a still-active veteran - and of course a great Goodwood supporter which always impressed me considering his brother Joe had lost his life on the circuit in 1962...

 

Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Thanks Richard. Well John Campbell Jones was also at that event (and others) so I guess these things come in threes, sadly.

Can I use the photo of Bob for his WATN page please Richard?

Yes sure Richard  I do also have others from the same day    but that one is very typical of Bob - nice man.
