:shit: Another early (6th) MOBI 'Pioneer', we're losing too many of 'em lately... [-( :bugger:

:-k I see he was a 'Greenie' (leaving RANATE after 6th Term,) otherwise normally, Paul would have been an 8th Term Senior Apprentice when Ned and I were in 1st Term, so not having
known him there, I obviously wouldn't remember him, nor do I recall meeting him out in 'The Fleet', but I'm sure he was a nice guy, :happy: 'cos he was a MOBI :yess: and will be missed... :tear:

=; Rest on your oars, Paul Andrew Mackay, your journey's done... :happy: VALE and Rest In Peace, Brother... [-o<
