The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Appreciation For Robin Melville By Robert E Wells

I worked for Robin as a designer in the 80s, and can confirm he was a one off all right.He took me to America and one night in some dodgy bar in Texas I spotted a tattoo sticking out from above his sock, turned out it was a snake around a dagger, and of course Robin being Robin had some equally dodgy story as to how it got there. I am not going to reveal who stole the US flag flying above Alcatraz,but needless to say he was lucky to not end up staying there. My kind regards to his family...a fine man... Rob.
