Hello everyone, this is Jo - Brian's daughter, I just wanted to let you know that he had quite a nasty stroke last week and is in hospital. I know how much he loves hearing from friends and just wanted to say that if anyone would like to message him, I can read it out to him in hospital. Hope you're all well, take care

you will need to be very patient with your recovery as we here look forward to your wonderful threads on Sailors home more so with your continuing story of A liverpool lad and those collections of poster art of ships, personally i loved to see that jolly roger avatar in the new posts list as it was a guarantee of something good to see or read so we shall will you to get back to your normal cheerful articulate self.

you have six months to to work on your recovery mate as there will be lot's of disappointed little'ns waiting for santa :sleigh: so get cracking the whip [Clint.gif] and do some [arsekiss] to make sure that you get the best from those doctors and nurses in there.

hi Jo.
Thanks for letting us know about the old fella.
The things people do to get out of old mans Sunday inspection, but baring in mind that he is in the sick bay the old man is making an exception for him this one time only. He,s still expecting the decks to be swabbed, bunk made up with clean linen and he doesn't want to find anymore playboy mags tucked under your pillow.
Get well soon Brian. from all down under in the Land of the big white cloud.

Looking forward to your resumption on site mate. Might try to get in touch with the hospital to make sure they get the worst looking nurses to tend to you otherwise can see you swinging the lead. Will make sure that no one else picks your chipping hammer or pot of red lead mate. Just remember that old saying about going blind if to many strokes are pulled hey. Maybe this is gods way of warning you to stop thinking about past exploits in foreign ports LOL.

Hi Bro Brian.
You have always characterized yourself as a person with a lot of will power, so I am sure that you will recover soon enough. Take care of yourself and follow the doctor’s recommendations. See you on the forum soon.
From your Friend of many years... Reg :wave;

Hi guys, its Jo again - thanks for your messages, they really made him smile haha. He fell asleep before he could respond properly but he did say it was lovely of you and to thank you all :D He has pneumonia now as well, hopefully all those years at sea have toughened him up enough to fight it! Take care

Email from Phil Hughes

I’ve just seen the message from Brian’s daughter regarding his stroke and I’m sad to hear of it. I hope it’s not a major stroke and he still has the ability to communicate with family and friends. Please pass on the very best wishes of all in the Independent Vindicatrix of East Kent to him in the hope he makes a good recovery soon.

It`s been so long since I did any posting [I`m 84 and in very bad health myself] that having come across your post concerning Brians stroke, I`d completely forgotten how to navigate back to it. So...I simply sent Brian an email, which probably wasn`t the best thing to do. Anyway I do hope you will look it up and read it to him. It`s important to me Jo as I did very much value Brians posts and often told him so. Just as he used to heap great praise on my own seafaring poetry.

Obviously I have now navigated back to your post and can now only offer my regards and sincerely hope that Brian mends well, he is so much respected by many. Really !!!
