    Hi Dave/Col,

    Great work chaps, was looking totally in wrong direction, had a pic of him stood under a Spit prop so was looking at Spit losses, and as he is buried in Edinburgh I thought it would be a crash up near there as he appeared to hail from Shetland I wondered why he was buried in Edinburgh?

    Thanks again.
    Regards
    Dave
