Sad/horrific news indeed - I just hope it really was an accident rather than as a result of illness or an unpleasant diagnosis. I chatted with him a few years ago and he gave freely of his time and was a really nice chap. Sympathies to his wife and family.

Very sad news indeed. My condolences to his family and friends.

Never knew Bobby lived in Shamley Green. By coincidence my wife and I went there for lunch in the Elan last weekend.

Did you spend the time between his death (in 2017) and now (in 2019) establishing the facts Jim?
