RIP Bill. We did have talks about dogs and he subsequently joined our Gundog Club. I only met him once very briefly at a spaniel test about 2 years ago. Was surprised I had not heard of or seen him recently and just assumed he had decided not pursued competition with his dogs sadly now we all know why. We salute you Bill and I am sorry I will not not make the memorial service although it is very local but I will raise a glass to you this evening.

I became concerned for Bill after dantheman observed this in the BLF thread:

dantheman wrote:
On the same vein Bill Wright hasn't posted for a while. The forum has missed his Friday funnies.


A quick Google search revealed the worst. Sad

I never met Bill but, from what I've found out about him since learning of his death, he seemed to be much like the rest of us here; Loved his dogs, his Land Rovers and the great outdoors. He also raised money for The Royal Marines Charity, despite having been around the block a bit with his health in recent years.

RIP Bill. We will miss your jokes.

Sad times on DISCO3.CO.UK this week. Sad
