Lost another good friend and neighbour recently DENNIS, we had been friends for over 60 years and neighbours for about 48 years. He was a Japanese prisoner of war in Borneo for about 4 years, a very keen and knowledgeable motor cyclist, but most of all enjoyed his camping, towing his caravan with his Landrover hence the theme of the plaque. Made from Oak, hand carved and finished with Melamine lacquer it hangs in a local cafe that Dennis patronised, the plaque was commissioned by the owner of the cafe. RIP Dennis.

Sorry to hear about your loss. A nice tribute for a longtime friend. 60 years is longer than twice my lifetime so far. Only the truest of friendships lasts that long.
