Bertie Kensington Moir

Bertie Moir was known as an Aston Martin driver early in his career but latterly is better known as the nephew of Sidney Straker who built Straker Squire cars. During the Great War he had been in the navy and when his uncle approached him to drive the Straker Squire two seater at Brooklands he hit upon the idea of dazzle painting the car, a form of navy camouflage, for maximum publicity. Fortunately it worked and the very rapid car was photographed extensively.

He drove an Aston Martin named  Bunny in the Isle of Man T.T. and spent the return journey to Liverpool on the Castle Mona ferry talking with Walter Bentley. They hit it off and he subsequently joined Bentleys working at their service department as second in command to Hubert Pike.
