I've just had a hectic weekend with band gigs. Just sat down to some VAME time and see this!
Tim has to be one of the most genuine chaps I have had the pleasure to meet, not only in VAM circles, or collecting circles but in life in general. He has inspired many of us on this forum to " get the troops outside" and capture it on film. His epic photographic exploits have left us all speechless and driven us to attempt do do the same, which has in turn lead to the terrific photo comp entries we see every month.
His knowledge of all things VAM, especially the EE era were second to none, and the willingness to share his knowledge both on here and face to face at the meets were invaluable to fellow members.
It is ironic I suppose that the hobby itself has lead partly to his leaving our fold, hopefully only as a temporary measure. I hope I speak on behalf of other members on here when I wish Tim every happiness with his family in the future, and pray that he can find the balance in life to come back to VAME in the not too distant future.
Tim, I salute you as a fellow collector and all round good guy
Gonna miss you mate
