I had this mail from Basil this morning. Quite a tragedy. Thought you guys would like to know if you didn't get the mail...

Dear BCF Member,

Most of you who frequent the British Car Forum know our MG forum moderator, Tony Barnhill. Some of you already know this, but for those who don't it is with great sadness that I much inform the members of BCF that Tony was killed in a head-on collision near his home in Gurley, Alabama on Monday, 25 Jan 2010. His wife was seriously injured as well and remains in ICU. The accident occurred Monday morning, 25 Jan 2010. Tony had been a dear friend and one of my Moderators for over nine years. In that time he helped countless enthusiasts from around the world solve their MG and other British car problems. Many of you knew him personally; some only knew him from the internet. Either way, those who had the good fortune to cross paths with Lt Colonel (USA, retired) Tony Barnhill were all the richer for the experience. I have a thread in the “Pub” forum where members can post their condolences to the family and/or post remembrances of Tony. From the posts we have so far, it is obvious that Tony touched a lot of lives and his death leaves a huge void. At the appropriate time, I will print and send the thread to Tony’s family with all your condolences.

Sincerely,
Basil
