It is with immense sadness that I have to record the death after a long illness of my friend, George Stewart.
George was the main compiler of material for the book Bobby Troughton and the Kendal Otterhounds which we wrote together with Jean Gidman. The book sold out both print runs and was well received.
There is much I could say about George's help, kindness and warmth but for me his epitaph is...
A guy came up to me one morning on the fell and after inquiring who I was shook my hand and said, "There is a lot about my grandfather in your book I didn't know - thank you."
... all down to you, George.
