    Very nice celebration of the life of Rob Walker at Goodwood Revival, 2018. It is appropriate for the Vintage Ferrari section as many Ferrari fans will be interested in him and his life due to his association with the famous 250 GT SWB Berlinetta Competizione cars, 2119GT and 2735GT which can be seen in the video plus an interview with Ross Brawn. Doug Nye is one of the narrators.

    I have met Sir Moss and his lovely bride.

    Regret never having the chance, but loved reading Rob Walker's life.
    The comment about expectations of surviving the war were spot on.

    He flew one flight blinded in fog, and as it cleared he saw he was above the ocean, all right, but below the elevation of the cliffs, on shore.
    Better lucky than good and IMO he was both.

    What a handsome wedding picture.....
