Frank Field was at Danes the same time as Essex and another friend of mine Geoff Murrell.

Frank Field was though a few years above them whilst at the school and I am sure they did not really know Frank that well.

A point for kerrins, as Underwood gets his obit in the latest Private Eye.

And R.I.P. Dickey Betts, of U.S. rockers, the Allman Brothers Band.
Saw them at the very 1st Knebworth concert.
He wrote their biggest hit, "Ramblin' Man."
