    Hi Brian
    Kevin McConville informed me that Mick Nixon (Magnus) had passed away. I was saddened to hear of this. He was such a good man – always too much to say but done with his own impeccable (Monty Python) sort of way. Love to Di and his family. He will be sadly missed. Regards Phil Warelow

  2. Yes – always sad to lose one of our own – and at such an early age. Condolences to all the family.

    Despite trying I still haven’t managed to get in touch with Brian Hartill.
    Is there anyway you can either supply his email or give him mine please.

  4. Phil requested Email address on it’s way to you – privately – Not via the Comments Box

    Got that awful feeling of distress and shock when I read Phil’s note that Mick had passed away. I did have contact with him a few years ago and he visited me with Di for a weekend. We’re looked in on him in Stafford then lost contact again. Last time we spoke was when he rang me to let me know Pat Bourke has passed away. What a bugger eh. Our love to Di and family.
    Odd that there is a question about Enrique Mateu as Mick and I worked with him in Milford Ward in 77/78 with Mick Morgan. Good times and a great doctor to work with.

    Blimey. There are some names on here from the past and a picture of Bernie as well :-)

  8. Further to Siobhan and Doug’s comments above – some references can be found to Dr Enrique Mateu-Lopez on Google.
