Alan 'Big Al' Hoare

I met Al the first week in September 1973, our first day at Parmiters Grammar School, Bethnal Green. Me and Al were never going to make the sports teams for very obvious reasons, we opted to find ways of cheating on the cross country runs. Al was always very generous especially if you needed money to go to the cafe at lunch times. I met up again with Al about 35 years or so after we left school, he was funnier, more generous and had not changed much (his mass of black curly hair had given way to a short grey crop). It was great having Al on the annual Puerto Banus weekender with the boys from school making us laugh and never finding out where he got doonabs from. Can’t stop hearing your voice Al, rest in peace mate. Brad
