Edward John Hobson 1928-2019

Life member and former editor of the club journal, Edward John (Eddie) Hobson sadly passed away on the 19th February 2019. Eddie was our longest standing member after 73 years with the club, having joined in 1946.

The photo shows Eddie during the club 12 hour held on 10th September 1950, at the age of 21. His friends of that era included Don Murray, Ken Pearson and Ged Horn.

Our condolences go to Eddies wife Jean, and his friends and family.
