    What a shame - I think all the original writers from when I somehow got hold of a copy of the "Shooting Times" - as a youngster in about 1977 (7 years old) have gone now - Petral, BB, Geoffory Boothroyd, Colin Wilcox, Jack Ivester Lloyd, Whiteface, Chris Craddock, Arthur Ogilsby, Hugh Falkus, Arthur Cadman, Archie Coats, Rusticus - all spring too mind. I still have those very first copies I read and in a small but important way they changed my life a little.
    I remember him best for his interviews with the last of the old fen gunners.
