Unhappy day indeed. You were a great bloke Barrie and you set me on the right track re my early metal detectors eg Sov XS and the GS 15000 and your back up service was excellent.
Wherever you are now mate I hope you are surrounded by the Aussie bush and heaps of nuggets poking out of the ground.
RIP mate. Detecting Camp Fire
