Michele - I thought that video clip wasn't a figment of my imagination. Spent ages last week looking for it, but sadly, it must have got deleted at some point.

Thank you.

Oh-and thank you to everyone who fed me gin at the wake. It was much appreciated! Being poor sucks, especially when you need a drink as much as I did that day...

Well, credit where credit's due. I found the pic on the Shipmeet Photos thread. I think it was taken by iGeek on Gambit's birthday.

Thanks, Spike. A lovely report.

The pic was indeed taken at the Greencoat Boy on the occasion of James' birthday. I ran across an email from James when we were planning this:
quote:
So, dude,

I'm looking to plan the 'Igeek's return to the UK and Gambit's Birthday Meet' in the Greencoat Boy during the week of 16-23rd May, when I know you're back. Friday nights/Saturday nights seem to provide enough time to get up to serious mischief so, with respect to your plans, what do you think? Friday 20th, 7.30pm for 8 or Saturday 21st, 7pm for 7.30?

Yours,

Gambit

We did get up to some serious mischief, as I recall. [Tear]

I have not spent much time on board lately what with Christmas, and only caught up with this very sad news via the MW.

God bless, Gambit - we'll miss you. And heartfelt condolences to eyeliner, Sarah and all your nearest and dearest. [Votive]

There will be a service of Choral Evensong in memory of James on Tuesday 21st February, starting at 5.30pm in the Chapel of King's, London.

James was part of the choir at King's when he was a student and the current choir will be singing at the service. There will be opportunities for reflection and prayer during the service.

Everyone is welcome to attend.

I shall of course be there, though I may as well point out now that I am unlikely to be with the Ship crowd-I suspect I will be with James's Kings friends.

Oh, you know what I mean. If there was, like, a meet before or something. Or during the actual service.

Stop being pedantic! [Razz]

oh, eyeliner, I am so sorry to learn of this tragedy. Please accept my belated condolences.

After Señor Frog joined our family back in August, my life has gotten quite small and I have not checked in to the Ship for many many months.

Last night I expected an easy lurk. The first thing I looked for was a Gambit monthly Shipmeet thread.

I look forward to joining a heavenly shipmeet one day. I am certain he is already organizing them up there on a regular basis.

I'm in London teaching next Tuesday, so I shall try to go, assuming I can get a late pass from WD. I'm teaching until 6pm, so I'll be late for the service, but it's only across the road, so I shall sneak in at the back somehow.

The mapcovers a huge area and doesn't show where exactly the chapel is. Can anyone narrow it down for me?
