In today's (7th August) London Times there is a death notice for Hugh Brogan. As most of here know he wrote the bbiography of AR.

I have recounted here before that as a mature student at Essex Univeraity I metI him , found him to be most approachable (I just knocked on his office door one afternoon!) He signed my copy of the biography and we had a discussion about our favourite AR book, a choice we shared - WH.

I lost my signed copy of the biography in a messy divorce 20 years ago, when I acquired a new copy I e-mailed him asking if he would sign a slip of paper for me keep in the new copy (as the original book had been a present from my late mother I was keen to have his signature in the replacement copy), he replied to my request promptly and was willing to do so given the cirsumstances for which I was most grateful.
