Sad death of John Ritchie

John Ritchie, aged 67

The very sad news was received over the weekend of the untimely death of John Ritchie, who was one of the founder members of this website way back well over ten years ago.

John died in the Royal Infirmary, Edinburgh, where he had been taken after feeling unwell on Wednesday last week.

We are immensely grateful for the enormous enthusiasm that John always displayed for his media work and for the very considerable contribution that he made to this web site.
