    Hats off.
  2. Might have been better with a stannah stairlift.
  3. I've got to admit, there's a certain style to that. Not quite rock'n'roll, but not a bad attempt either.

    Can't imagine Ozzie Osbourne meeting his end on a Segway.
  4. If this is true it is really sad. He did a lot for the chaps and the HESCO stands were awesome at all the shows!

    RIP a great bloke.

    That's terrible news. The guy is a hero in his own right for the work he's done, both for the protection of Armed Forces personnel with HESCO, and also for his massive donations to Armed Forces charities.

    I'm gutted, and also sure he'll be terribly missed.

    Having said that, buying the Segway company required a leap of faith, and it's been shown that, as an idea, it hasn't got wings.
  6. Very sad indeed.

    An extremely generous man who never forgot where he came from.
  7. Or a Stannah "Starlift", hats off all the same.
