In Memoriam

And the dangers of the dust were well known many years ago. The term mesothelioma was first used in medical literature in 1931; its association with asbestos was first noted sometime in the 1940s.

Slim Whitman has died aged 89.

 

He was one of the most successful singers in the history of country music. He enjoyed chart hits across five decades and was one of the first country artists to attain mainstream popularity in Britain and Europe. Indeed, his 1955 hit single Rose Marie held the record for the longest spell at No 1 in the UK charts until 1992, when Bryan Adams eventually topped the achievement.

Sad to hear that Prof Mick Aston has died at just 66 yrs of age.

Well known archaeologist of Time Team fame.

I had the pleasure of one of his lectures while at uni.

It's very sad about Mick Aston - Sunday evenings in my home used to revolve around Time Team.

Commander Eddie Grenfell has died aged 93.

 

Against persistent political opposition, “Eddie†Grenfell led the movement to introduce a medal to be awarded to all those who took part in Arctic convoys to Murmansk in Russia during the Second World War.

 

It was eventually awarded and not before time. It must have been sheer hell.

Gary Rhett Shearston (9 January 1939 â€“ 1 July 2013[1][2]) was an Australian singer and songwriter who was a leading figure of the folk music revival of the 1960s. He was notable as a performer of Australian traditional folk songs in an authentic style. He scored a Top 10 hit in the United Kingdom in 1974 with his cover version of the Cole Porter song "I Get a Kick out of You".

A more recognisable name in the UK than here I suspect.

Like so many Australian artists that migrate to the UK after succeding there, and not here.

Farewell Louis - chimpanzee star of PG Tips advert dies

 

For 30 years, visitors to the monkey house at Twycross Zoo in Leicestershire were unaware that they were in the presence of an acting genius, who in his most famous role as the spy Brooke Bond repeatedly saved the world from destruction and protected the secrets of making a good cup of tea.

 

In the pantheon of great simian actors, Louis the chimpanzee, who has died at the age of 37, perhaps comes third behind only Jiggs, the first to play Cheeta to Jonny Weissmuller’s Tarzan, and CJ, the orangutan who played Clyde in Every Which Way But Loose, but once the work dried up in the mid-1980s he kept himself to himself.

RIP Michael Ansara, the veteran TV and film actor who has died aged 91. He appeared in many TV series and numerous films and was one of those whose name was not overfamiliar but his face was.

I remember him from Star Trek where he played the Klingon commander Kang in the original series.
