FWIW, if anything. Nic & Julia and the children had been to visit Valerie & me for lunch not very long before the accident ~~ we lived in Cambs villages only a few miles apart. When we learned of the accident from a newspaper report, we called and spoke to Julia's parents who were looking after the children while Julia was at the hospital, and went round there. All I really recall was the sad and depressed atmosphere. We visited many times after Nic came home and was somewhat on the mend. I remember one time he had got out his fiddle and played a bit as best he then could, and I strummed along on guitar, and the sad gaiety of his saying ironically, "Shall we do gigs?"

Soon after, they moved to Yorkshire, and then to Devon; and we rather lost touch until the few exchanges I had a bit back with Julia and Helen on another of your threads, Nigel.

Don't know if any of these recollections of any interest in this present context?

Best
