It is not Rod Perkins that has passed away but his brother Robert Perkins. Both known as Polly and I am sure that Rob was also a WM. He did not serve the number of years that Rod did but was a good hand as well as his brother. RIP ROB.

Yeah, thanks for that I had an idea it could have been Rod's Brother. The message was bit light on for details. I knew Robert too, but he was a Docky Copper when I knew him.

Yes, Robert was a good bloke and I wish him fair winds and following seas.
