Thanks for that, tubby,

Looks like it was quite a party! Do you have a location, context, and a rough date? You will know, of course, of Terry's passing, but - for any reader who hasn't learned...

From what I remember, fifty years on, Bob was one of the most modest and unpretentious people you would hope to meet - particularly in aviation.
