Thanks Simon and Tim. Bad luck, a very equable fellow, first met in Terror in 1967, assume he was ex-RN and transferred to us. Feel his wife Helen was a world-renowned milliner and made some lids for Hilary Clinton among other high-end fashion fans. Her name shop at QVB near Town Hall but unsure if she sold rights? Death notice in SMH and CT recently. Of Polish heritage presumably. Not seen him for over twenty years I believe. Vale him.
