on reading through this thread I came on your query of 1st Sept of message # 10 to Ron about being in touch with Tom - Peter and Frank - he probably missed it in talking to Oz but the answer is yes - we all keep in touch just about daily and Ron and I are busy arranging a lunch in London just before Christmas when I fly over there, and hopefully Gerry Chester will be able to join us..Peter can't make it and Frank is doing the home care bit for his wife who is poorly at this time..
cheers Trooper Tom
