    Went along to Wells today myself. Quite impressed with the turn out from the public. And yes, some of the public clapped.

    Nice touch Chris. I'm just about to pour myself a tot of Pussers to do the same. Everyone who met Harry seems to say the same thing - "A modest man and a true Gentleman", so that's who I'll be drinking to.
