I've just finished watching some of Question Time on BBC and two points were mentioned that I wholeheartedly agree with. Firstly, the fact that when something like Wednesday's London atrocity happens in this country the television media go on and on about it for far too long and repeat what's already been said endlessly. It's just giving extremists the air time they crave and forces people to switch off. Secondly, and on a similar subject, there's a part of me that doesn't want to know the names of these terrorists and I certainly don't want them to be made public as, again, it's giving them the glory they seek and gives organizations like ISIS the opportunity to claim them as one of theirs. I'm all for highlighting those who have lost their lives and those who have done and will continue to do their duty in trying to protect us as well as those members of the public who stepped in to help, but I can do without the unfounded speculation of news reporters and their determination to find someone to blame for not preventing the unpreventable.
You're welcome, Michal. Don't punish yourself over not being close to your brother later on; life's not always as simple as we'd like it to be.
I'm with you on the cardboard coffin, Cliff but not sure we can run to an estate car. The 14 bus would be appropriate. No smoking on top!
A couple of small get-togethers occured recently. I met up in the Fox and Pheasant, Chelsea, with John Conway, John Henwood, Paul O'Shea, Mick Jarvis, Jurek Grzenda, Pete Kosciolek, Geoff Hall, Sean Morris and Martin Ferber and, as you'll see from the photos, John Conway had met up in Amersham, the week before, with John Henwood, Roger Holmes (first photo) and Mick Hagreen (with John Henwood in the 2nd photo) -

Wayne Lewis has provided me with a couple of photos concerning Sloane football. I've put them on the Football slideshow on the Sloane Sport page but I'll add them both here in the hope that someone can fill in the missing names for the 1963-4 1st XI which is the first one shown. The names we have are Back Row L-R ?, Carr, Lewis, Nuttall, Mason, Matthews. Front L-R ? Hanlon, Coleman, Theodossi, Hall -
