Always looked out for Barry at comps and had long chats during and after shoots;a lot of the time persuading him my HW77 wasn't for sale!and occasionally rare moments on the suitability of another pint.
We used to go on holiday to cornwall and passed "near to his home" and had a standing invite to drop in. Sometimes you regret not doing things when you had the chance,and this was one of them.The reason we didn't manage to drop in,was we passed by around 5 in the morning going there and 12 ish or later at night going home after a hard surfing week.
Didn't realise he had an annual memorial,will try harder next year.
