Bob from the UK London made a tremendous contibution to this forum. He has gone noticeably silent.

Just wondering if he is okay because from some of his posts, the poor chap had some horrible health issues and I am certain he will be very sadly missed if Fate has taken him.

Not so far - both Bob's email address and that for his son have been closed and no longer accessible.

I have not been able to find a phone directory that allows access to phone numbers or an electoral roll to get current contact details.

I did a search of local newspapers for news items and notices relating to Bob without any success.

If anyone knows a way current UK phone listings can be accessed, I have information which would allow me to contact a family member.

I suspect Bob may be in an aged care centre or similar but his son is the person we need to find as he knows me from our contact over the years. I am surprised he hasn't contacted me to advise the reason for Bob's absence as he has my contact details.

I miss my mate as Bob and I go back to 2002 and the Swammelstein Shadow Forum subsequently destroyed by internet trolls. I convinced him to join our forum when the Swammelstein closed and I always looked forward to his contributions.

If anyone can help with a phone number/electoral roll search in the UK, please send me a PM through this forum.

Just a thought, David is it possible for you to get his location by his IP address.
I too have looked in the local Dorset papers without success.
I remember a posting saying where he obtained some spares but have not found the posting!
I shall be visiting the Grandson etc in Poole tomorrow so will if time permits do some checks with the local authorities etc in Bournemouth if open.

Good thinking Patrick R, the only draw back is the data protection law.

Richard, data protection law, that's a laugh, use the computer or Facebook and the like finds most things sooner or later.

Back to Bob, retired from being a police transport engineer.
Retired from Sunseeker poole.
Patrick R think the Rolls stockist was more local than Flying spares.
Local motor factor for spares and not Eurocar parts.
Did visit Classics on the Pier Bournemouth.
Hospital that he used is now closed.

He also used to frequent the “pound shop/store ” for all his little nic nacks and watch batteries etc.
Not to mention all his local area boot sales etc.

Wish I was closer just to have a good walk around and ask a few questions.

He would have been well known from his black Shadow drives around town, then I’m sure people would have all known him on his electric scooter trips.

I will email the chap from Flying Spares tomorrow.

He was always up for a chat in our emails re parts.

I will explain the situation to him and see what we can come up with.

Will an old fashioned postal mail letter work if there is a physical address?

David, no email arrived, have sent you a email but no luck with that!
Have looked at my au.rr forum editor site profile and the email address shown is correct.
I am with BT Yahoo mail maybe I changed it years ago.

I wonder if Bob ever wrote to Hunt House for the build sheets on his Black Rolls Royce?

If he did then maybe they have his address on file.

Omar - last post was 8th February 2018 as posted by Richard Yeaman above.

Christopher - Robert was a very individual individual and I am of the opinion he may not have been comfortable in the typical club environment where conformity was valued.
