It is with regret that the death of Hugh Pettigrew , known to oler FP’s as SHUGHS is noted at the early age of 57. Hugh, who was living in Livingston, West Lothian, died after a short illness.
Bernard Wynn-Williams , a reconstructive dentist, is visiting the U.K. at the beginning of September. I have suggested meeting him in the main bar of the Sheraton Hotel, Lothian Road, on 7th September at 7.30pm, and all who knew him should make an effort to meet him. He is looking forward to the meeting, but not to the extent of buying drinks.
Requests have been made about the whereabouts of Bernard Doyle and Allan Murray . Can anyone help?
A very nice e-mail was received from Mark Tobin Moore , from America, expressing his good wishes to all, and his horror at the outrage of the London bombing.

Recently traced older FP’s. include David Walls, John and Paul McLaughlin, Tony Ward and Jurek Lisowski .
