He sounds just like my kind of guy!
I echo Jane! My kind of guy.
Sir John Leslie was very well liked by everyone and much mourned. He was usually known as “Jack” and sometimes “Uncle Jack”. He was the subject of a television programme made in 2002 called “Uncle Jack and the Boom-Boom music”.
Thanks, Elle. Much appreciated. – BGT
