    I will ask my A&SH friend if he can update his comrades.

    I'll be visiting Tommy Stoker on Sunday but I think you already have his details and picture?

    I've got all the details G, but the photo I have of his grave is a couple of years old and it shows the gravestone to be in a sad state. If it has been tidied or cleaned, can you take another. If it is untouched as before, then we should really try to do something about it.
    Cheers mucker.

    He'll plead poverty. The last round he bought in the pub on Tuesday night set him back over 50.

    Prices have risen sharply because of the downfall in the Euro effecting the cocktail umbrella trade.
    Cherries dont grow on trees you know, and if you want a twist of lemming you are into what has become a specialist high-end market owing to the import restrictions on endangered species.
    You just cant get the wood anymore either.
    YOU may not want your pint tarted up with all these fol-de-rols but they still have to be provided by the landlord if he wants to retain his place in todays cut-throat entertainment business.
    But does anybody think of the poor publican?

    The headstone is indeed in a sad state but it can't be sorted by just scrubbing it as the lettering would then peel off. Helen has kindly offered to adopt Tommy and will be seeking a professional quote as there are no known relatives remaining. I have suggested that NIVA would be happy to contribute.

    The writing on the photo I have is a bit clearer so I will retain that one.
