    Knew of him didn't realise he died in the serious Flu epidemic of 1918. I would guess that after "saving Winchester Cathedral" he remained a dockyard diver though out the WW1. If not what did he do? There is a pub named after him outside the cathedral.
    Evolution is great at solving problems. It's the methods that concern me.

    I recall seeing a “Pirated” DVD of a tv progrM some years ago, about about the work on the cathedral, truly awesome effort
