I remember my grandfather telling me but can try and get more on this. Also he was a very big man and was a good boxer. He always had a fresh rose in his jacket pocket which he always plucked from a bush in his garden, yet soon after Harry passed away, within days the rose bush died too! Spooky. Daborn]
