I went to see my old mate Jeff Dixon at his home in Hertfordshire, he is now unfortunately registered blind, but has partial sight. The good news is that he is waiting for a lens which will bring reasonable sight to one eye. Despite this and the fact that his mobility is serious impaired, he remains positive, which is a credit to him. He can still see some TV and follows the football and news. It was very humbling and I thought to myself, what do I have to complain about? Truth is nothing!

We started working together in Sea Containers in 1979, ouch, I must have had short trousers then!
