Owen was a gentleman of the old school. As vice-chairman of All Things Ransome he ensured that no corners were cut as far as our governance procedures. Yet he was a passionate enthusiast. He loved steam engines, traction engines, steam boats, tinplate model railways, analogue cameras... and the works of Arthur Ransome.

He was an original member of the 'gang of three' that met in the "Red Lion Pub" opposite Ealing Film Studios to discuss the future of TarBoard. Wise voices opined that resurrecting the old 'Arthur Ransome Pages' (now incorporated in 'All Things Ransome') was going to need resources and diplomacy enough, and that trying to take on TarBoard as well could well be 'A Bridge Too Far'. Owen's enthusiasm carried the day and here we are!
