GUEST,Folkiedave Obit: Graeme Miles: RIP (29 March 2013) (56* d) RE: Obit: Graeme Miles: RIP (29 March 2013) 30 Mar 13

He came for lunch one Sunday after visiting the Sheffield Carols at Dungworth. Whenever we met he always mentioned my soup! A truly great man. I echo all the other thoughts and add this.....

Mike and Norma Waterson used to sing one of his lesser-known songs "The Young Engineer". It tells the story of how people came from all over to build the Forth Road Bridge starting at each bank at the same time of course.

"Oh where is the young lad, the young engineer,
Not seem him in these parts for nigh on a year.
Well if you mean Johnny, you'll find him up North,
At work on the new bridge that spans o'er the Forth.

and ends with what to me is still one of the great lines in contemporary folk song: the men from the south and the men from the north,
will meet and complete the bridge over the Forth".

RIP Graeme, Sympathies from Helen and I.
