If you were unaware of his activities then perhaps have a little Goggle moment or at least look see here.

I quite agree Willinicity. Such a Man should not be forgotten, but I fear no film will be made about him and his exploits.

This man's life was highlighted on our morning TV.
One of life's hidden gems.

His activities may never have been been brought into the public eye during his lifetime if it had not been for Esther Rantzen. I remember seeing the programme, certainly for the youngsters whose lives he saved it will be a sad passing.

To do what he did for all those children in troubled times, and to remain silent about his achievements for years, shows what a truly modest man he was. A fantastic example to all those attention seekers who are famous for no reason at all.
May he rest in peace.

Roy.

Superb gentleman of the 'old' school. Saw what was happening and what had to be done. No if's or buts - just got on with the job. Gave 600 children a chance of life and didn't seek glorification himself. A fine person. R.I.P. N.W.
