Long Shot For Rogey

Reposted for Rogey - Good Luck!
In 1973 when Ted Simon was riding his Trumphy around the world he bumped into a kiwi bloke called Ian Shaw, who was doing a similar trip but in reverse. This meeting took place in East Africa.  All we do know is that Ian was originally from Hamilton.

A good friend of mine is trying to track him down, and to find out what happened to him.  As this meeting took place some 40 years this is no mean feat.  So using the power of the web,  I am sending out this blog in the hope it may trigger some body who may know Ian  and lead us in the right direction.

I am hoping a few of my blog followers would be so kind to share this blog also, that it may reach as many people as possible.

This picture is the only picture we have of him ,  and it was kindly supplied by Ted Simon himself.

Any information any one may have would be greatly appreciated.

  1. I sure hope someone out there knows something and contacts them.

    Someone, somewhere must know.

    Thank you for reposting this, I am sure Roger appreciates it, as I do too.
