"Well, there is only one piece of advice I can give you," said the wisest of wise men. "The secret of happiness is to see all the marvels of the world and never to forget the drops of oil on the spoon."

    The last rime I saw Hugh was in February when he took the trouble to bring his family from Bradford to Bristol to visit me in hospital. He told me about his future plans -- promotion to sereant 2010, stay in to collect a good pension and then set up his own firm. Some years ago I gave him his Great Grandad's dress sword, which he treasured.
    I wish so much that he had spoken to me on that fateful evening. Maybe, just maybe, I could have talked him round.
    I shall never know but the thought remains to haunt
    Grandad.
