Bill Speakman has died at the age of 90. He won the Victoria Cross for exceptional bravery in the Korean War in 1951, being the first person to be presented with this award by Elizabeth II.

To give a non-League link, he was brought up in Altrincham, on Moss Lane no less. Later he emigrated to South Africa (although it appears he returned to be a Chelsea Pensioner), but did attend an away game at Torquay United as a guest of the club in 2008, while visiting relatives in Devon.

Every account that I have read of his life was that he was an absolute tyrant.

From 2017, but I still wanted to mention the passing of this star from the end of last year...

Actor, playwright and screenwriter Meic Povey died on 5th December 2017, aged 67.

Meic was one of Wales's leading playwrights of modern times, in both the English and Welsh languages, and was also one of the co-creators of the long-running soap opera 'Pobol y Cwm' in 1974. It is still running today after forty-four years, and still usually the most-watched programme on the S4C channel.

However, probably Meic's most famous acting role on television was that of Detective Constable 'Taff' Jones in 'Minder', the sidekick to Patrick Malahide's Sergeant Chisholm, who together had some of the funniest lines and most memorable scenes in the whole series...

Lord Carrington, who has died aged 99, was Foreign Secretary at the time of the Falklands crisis but had to resign because of it. Oddly enough, I didn't remember that at all, only John Nott's resignation as Defence Secretary at the same time, which I think got far more publicity.

Even when his death was announced the other day I did not know about it until I read today's Metro newspaper, which just goes to show how much the BBC thinks showing drunken English fans is far more important than the death of someone who was in Churchill's government and was often mentioned as a possible Conservative Party leader.

Carrington was a lot more than just a celebrity.

Even before his very lengthy, high powered political career he had been awarded the Military Cross as a Major in the Grenadier Guards.

https://www.theguardian.com/...-carrington-obituary

Both he and Nott offered their resignations at the time of the Argentinian invasion of the Falklands, Thatcher persuaded Nott to stay in post but couldn't do the same with Carrington.

Ironically, when papers were subsequently released under the 30 year rule it turned out that Carrington had argued forcefully against the decision to scrap HMS Endurance whilst Nott had backed it. It was the announcement of the intended scrapping that convinced the Argentines that the UK had given up on the Falklands and wouldn't contest an occupation of them.

He was by all accounts a highly intelligent and humorous individual. It would have been well worth hearing his views on Boris' stint as Foreign Secretary. Cool

Odd if it did, as Nott's resignation was not accepted. He remained as Defence Secretary throughout the conflict and was replaced the following January when he decided he would be retiring from the Commons at the next election.

I must have got confused about Nott - to be honest, all I can remember is the tremendous amount of stick he got in the press at the time.

Day was always a very abrasive interviewer. An early Jeremy Paxoman.

I remember him doing 'Question Time' before Dimblebum.

Day himself had tried and failed to become a "here today, gone tomorrow politician" when he stood as a Liberal Party candidate in the 1959 General Election,
