I am very sorry to report that a friend of 'Raedwald' http://raedwald.blogspot.com/ (real name Michael Neill) has been in touch today via the comment form on Broad Oak Magazine (awaiting moderation to protect the informant's personal information) to tell me that Mike has passed away. His friend is asking for information so he can get in touch with next of kin etc in England - is anybody here able to help?
Mike's brother has got in touch and matters are now in hand. Thanks to all who have expressed their condolences here, I am sure that there are very many others who feel the same way. I have passed Mike's brother's email address to James Higham in case you wish him to forward a message.
Nick Drew adds:
Thanks for letting us all know this sad news, Sackers.
He'll be greatly missed. I've put up a tribute here.
