I've just heard some sad news that my good friend and Ex-Reliant draughtsman Ted Laban passed away on 28th of January. His funeral will be at Coventry Crematorium (180 Cannon Hill Rd, Coventry CV4 7BX) on 15th February at 2.15pm.

Ted works on many technical drawings and designs at Reliant including the 4 wheel drive Scimitar!

R.I.P. Ted You'll be missed but never forgotten :(

Dave Poole :cry:

Wondering if I met Ted at Stoneleigh one year? Sorry to hear of his passing. RIP, Ted.
