really sad news ,wonder how old He was?  Only time I ever used is place was in 1966 ,when ermm    I broke down outside his premises early on a saturday morning , before they opened a guy came over asked what was wrong and got  me a rear chain spring clip and was on my way before  the stores opened ,always wondered who he was , unfortueately  to relate the A10 threw a rod about 5-10 miles further on !!

Eddie was 93. Overseas members might not recognise the name, but he's credited with creating the first RGS and supplying parts to BSA
