(7264) recently completed the Monte Carlo Rally
in his 56 year old, 1960 Rover P4 100 Saloon, Cuthbert, in memory of his beloved late wife, Moira
, who had been a rally enthuiast. She died on 20th October 2016 and missed out on participating in this rally epic. The return journey was some 4,200 kilometers in distance!
Gordon recently wrote to say that he had completed the rally,
"Hi everyone, well from the top of the Alps to the yachting billionaires marina, yes, Moira, we have done it (Just!!!), with us fortunately all the way to get us out of the snow ice ditches, miss the Stop Sign, make a cyclist go to the loo early, and the lady driver in the CitroÎn on the wrong side in the rocky tunnel, the Alpine Christmas decorations that confuse red traffic lights to green! Oh yes, and the smiling Gendarmerie for not looking at the speed limits as Cuthbert roared by throughout the last 34 hrs of nonstop lunacy in arriving at time check.
Scenery just stunning in the few seconds coming out of hairpins, people magnificent waving cheering photos, chatting. What an unforgettable experience that we are trying to digest in our Dinner suits over dinner at the 5-Star Fairmont on the seafront dripping with gold/yachts/ship's.
Cheers MOIRA from all of us"
Office Bearers and members of the Regimental Associations congratulate Gordon and ' Cuthbert' on a magnificant achievement in memory of Gordon's late wife, Moria. You may still donate to the cause.
