  1. I had the honour of getting to know Lennox Cotton as a as solicitor he was excellent company and rarely to his war service
    His solicitors practice was in Linenhall Street.
    He employed one of his ex naval colleagues (Jack)as a clerk who always referred to him as the Commander


    1. Tom – Good to hear from you. Confession – I seldom reply to comments here! I didn’t know Lennox but got to know his brother a former Gunner. Lovely person who are possibly extremely rare today. Hoping things are well with you and yours. I have enjoyed retirement. Houston
