Shocked to hear this. As fellow Scaley backs we often exchanged PMs.
He was an old school Sergeant Major, with a great sense of humour.
RIP John.

As said previously, a god poster; amusing and insightful. We old'uns are getting fewer but take comfort in the knowledge that you younger ones will also get old.
