I’d like to think that Arthur Treacher, Merv’s old partner and friend (who died in ‘75) turned to the crowd upstairs and said “And here’s the dear boy himself, Merv!”

Rest in Peace Merv, you were and remain a classy guy.

Goodness, that brought a tear to my eye.

I remember Treacher talking about how many young men from his village had been killed in WWI. I'm not sure of my memory, but it could be that he was the only one who survived the war. I guess I'm getting old if I remember Arthur Treacher and Merv Griffen together...
