Hi Janette, I have let one or two of your father's ex workmates know (all one time sparks at Lime Grove). Hopefully the word will get about.

Hi Janette
I remember your father, from his days in Lime Grove. I was a studio based cameraman but also used to go out on the road with him. It was always a pleasure to have Bert on the crew. I am so sorry for your loss.
