|Vale Fred Moon (2/10) VX5356|
We have been advised that Fred passed away on 28th November, 2015 just a few days after his 102nd birthday.
As our oldest 2/6 Vet, Fred had become somewhat of a legend in recent years for his longevity and for his caravanning exploits right up to his 100th birthday.
Our thoughts and prayers are extended to his family, friends and to all those that loved him.
To The Green Fields Beyond.
