I may very well have it wrong… I await some more digging time

Ooh you could be right…

Deinitely John COOPER who sported the (original) “MOONEYES” helmet. In fact that was his nickname.

It seems there was Dean Moon, an American hot rod drag enthusiast who had the moon eyes “brand” in the 50s…

Edit… but he seems to be car focused… so I’ve no idea who the above chap is? He might be Cooper, but reading his stuff suggests he was more of a racer.
