Sad news, indeed.
'Algy' as we all knew him, was a stalwart of London Control Room, forever "firkling' with this or that, smoking his pipe (allowed back in the day!) but an expert in so many things that kept LCR going.

I don't claim to have known him all that well, but in all my years in LCR I never saw him driving a Con (probably not 'his thing') - but he loved flying and was often going gliding on his days off.

As with so many, he was very shabbily treated when LCR was 'butchered' in the late 80s. But he seems to have got ~30 years of his pension out of it!

Hopefully, more details as to his funeral will be forthcoming.
