Adrian was a real gentleman, I have very fond memories of him, especially when I served on the Committee during the late early days of the association.

Although many current members may not have known Adrian, it is important to pay homage to his very considerable influence in the establishment and running of the LMA in it's first 20 years.

He held virtually all positions on Committee and BoG and in his own inimical style embracing old-fashioned politeness, generosity and not a little fortitude, did much in his own way to forge the ethos and camaraderie that we still enjoy in the Association to this day.

True gent' and thoroughly honourable person. The mould that he came out of is most assuredly broken.........

Condolences to the family.

Sad news indeed. Without Ardians calm steering hand through some of the difficult early days of the LMA I am not sure we would be where we are now.

A sad loss to us all.

So sorry to hear the sad news of Adrian's passing. He was a lovely, absolutely genuine human being who was admired and respected by all those who had the pleasure of serving alongside him on the the early LMA committees.

Very sad to hear of Adrian's passing, he was truly one of the last of the true English gentlemen. I have many fond memories of serving on early LMA committees with him.

Just spotted this posting and I too must whole heartedly concur with all the comments and tributes made about Adrian, and absolute gentleman in all sense of the word.
