Rest In Peace Charles

There are some lovely tributes in the Lymington Times today about the legendary former editor, Charles Curry.

It’s clear that he was a truly eccentric character and much loved by many.

I never met him face to face but over the years he used to call me out of the blue and a long discussion would ensue.

When the Editor of a newspaper calls you, it makes you feel uneasy because it suggests that he is working on an important story.

I was always a bit guarded when he first called me but started to relax as the conversation developed.

Most of the time, I wasn’t able to determine what the central purpose of his call was.

Still today, I am not sure if he was engaged in a “fishing exercise”, just lightly touching on some subjects that I might offer a distinct view on, or perhaps it was his way of engaging with different players in the community to get a rounded view.

He had a good sense of humour.

His political leanings were definitely conservative but we all have some faults.
