*Arthur's son, Corran, related how in November each year, as Remembrance Day approached, Arthur would stand outside the most vicious pub in the neighbourhood from 9am to 9pm selling poppies for the British Legion. 'Even the nastiest thugs would take one look at a quite short, bald old man in smart trench coat wearing the most medals they had ever seen in the movies, and would hand over some cash.'
