A photo of myself, nearest camera, and Dennis Henshaw when he came down to surprise me on my 60th birthday. Here we are looking for ships but with no luck, there are none in Luton. He totally made my weekend and we got on like wildfire. One wouldn't think we hadn't seen each other for 39 years.

Hey Stuart, the years have been kind to both of you, keep taking the medicine.
Must have been quite emotional, nearly 40 years a lot of water under the bridge for both of you, but a solid friendship is just that, especially made when in youth.
Nice picture.

Come to think of it he does look a bit like Acker.

Stuart,
The original post got me a bit confused, if you are in Luton, how and why did the Stockport local newspaper fit into the story ?

Don't worry, I'm often confused, and regularly write to Terry Wogan. I suppose I should make the TOG logo my avatar.

It was because when I last saw Dennis (1966 World Cup Winners year) He was still living in his home town of Stockport and it was from that date that he moved north of the border (Watford Gap services) so I put a letter on the letters page of one of the Stockport local rags asking if anyone knew of his whereabouts.
