Irv had a detailed knowledge of the KRRC that must have been second to no-one, and he summarised service details so well with the medals that he curated. I wonder if any member of this forum had the privilege of visiting him and seeing the collection when it was still together?

Sadly not, Brett. My only contact with him was via email in 2011 on the sale of the group to Bewicke-Copley who began to scale Twin Peaks before receiving the order to turn back. What a difference he could have made at Spion Kop.

He cast his net much more widely than just the ABW, so I have no doubt there will also be praise for Irv on other Internet sites.
