    Rather more relevantly to us Ian made several Television series in 1980's about the forces. Most notable was the series about the MAWC and later a fascinating documentary giving an insight into the Naval Gun Run and the preparation for the competition.

    Having done National Service, he greatly enjoyed any time that he subsequently spent with servicemen and held them in the highest regard.


    Night old boy.
     
  2. Whilst I'm sorry to see him go , wasn't that accolade appled to ex-PFF Mosquito leader Ken Wostenholme?
     
  3. Never heard of him (and what the heck is cricket?), but that surely seems a life very well spent. :thumright:

    RIP, sir.

    I have been wondering how to respond to your comment PTP, but I think that this link explains it far better than I ever could:

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/live/articles/sport/football.html?in_article_id=440293&in_page_id=1779

    and some of his articles:

    But as I said before we should remember him more as a great supporter of the forces.
