That's a shame. Not pretending that I knew him and only met him at club meetings many years ago and occasionally at shows in more recent years. An absolute gent from a bygone age, more's the pity. RIP.

He was probably the first posh person that I met. Used to love his announcements at shows "Jeck Russell dogs ring one, Laykie bitches ring two", just sounded so different. I say posh (and I am sure others here will know far better than me) but believe he was born into a mining family and funded his own education to eventually become a barrister. Some achievement for a lad from a pit village, particularly back then.
