Not sure if anyone has read this but its about Charles Grigg's life and work at the Dandy, printed in todays Birmingham Post. It's very touching and sad as his son has not told him the Dandy is ending due to his dementia.

The article is a great tribute to him; ... RU.twitter

:( What a shame! With dementia and at 96 years old, I fear it won't be long before we see an obituary. Hopefully when that time comes, it will shower him with the same praise as this article.

I just have one question? BILL Crighton? Isn't it James?

Ignoring the misspelling of "Korky the Kat", it was a very nice article.
