Hugh Lane, Hughlane Trainer

I heard this morning that Rob had died a day or two ago.

His dad and mine were gunners and prisoners of war together during WW2, and I was friends with Rob and his siblings. I was very fond of Rob. Apart from having a keen interest in competition law (of which he was a master as you know), I enjoyed chatting to him when he called by at Giles Pub occasionally for an after-work beer.
