That could be said to be a problem LD with having these 'youngsters' on OFF, they can make
'older' members feel even older (without of course, intending to)!

Apparently he made films as well as being on Radio and TV.

Can't say I have ever seen or heard of any of them though.

There's me believing you worked in the print trade in London during the same years as me LD,

Sad to think that, had he not died, he would be 121 now.

Re: R.I.P. Arthur

I remember him being a character in a comic as well. I thought it was The Beano or The Dandy but it wasn't. It was one called 'Radio Fun'.
