I was interested to read the article about Stirling Moss and his accident at Goodwood. My late uncle was a flag marshal at St Mary’s on that day and took me and two other family members to watch the racing from the St Mary’s spectator area on the inside of the circuit. We were delayed leaving after the last race as my uncle had to attend a meeting that was held to enquire about the accident.
Driving home he told us that at the meeting he was not asked if he had raised the blue flag, but as he had not raised it anyway he did not mention the fact. I know that there has been some uncertainty on this question and hope this may assist.
