DRL and I actually discussed doing this quite some time ago and we  should have
organised something by now really ...

Dennis is also one of the last people alive (possibly even the last) 
who is known to have rung at St. Bride's, Fleet Street.

Actually I know him quite well because he was a neighbour of my 
sister in Sunbury for
some years.  He has some really interesting recollections of WWII and 
being a P.O.W. in Italy too ....

He is a lovely chap.

Maybe Alan Regin is the man for this job.
