The independent voice of the global moving industry


Photo of a friend

Jun 26, 2015
While scrabbling through a box of old photos the other day I came across one of an old friend, Brian Mitchell, who was the General Secretary of BAR until his untimely and shocking death on 31 August, 1996 on the morning of his daughter’s wedding.

Brian was a greatly loved man in the industry.  He could be hard if people behaved foolishly, was quick to chastise and equally quick to forgive.  He never held grudges and was always there to offer his support for those who had the industry’s best interests at heart. 

Coming across his photo made me remember the day I heard he had died.  It also made me smile in remembrance of a friend.  I thought those who knew him might like a smile too.
