Nostalgia

I had an email from a susbcriber to my weekly newsletter, mainly about politics, but at the end he told this anecdote, which he has given me permission to share with you…

As I was born in East London I must admit to having a soft spot for the Hammers, even though I support Spurs, so glad they are safe now and can look forward to next season in the P.L. During my time In the Royal Navy as a Photographer I was lucky enough to meet the great Bobby Moore and actually sat next to him at a dinner. And three years later when I worked at the MOD in Whitehall I went to the local branch of Natwest in Trafalgar Square and while queuing I was tapped on the shoulder by – you guessed it! Bobby Moore, he asked me how I was and was my family OK, as you can imagine I was shocked he even remembered me, the kindest most humble man on gods earth. When he died I cried like a baby, he truly was my hero. We don’t have many role models these days do we? He was mine and I will always treasure those meetings, stay well, from one diabetic to another!
