I was sorry to hear this sad news.
Although I never met HH I think he made some very funny and valuable contributions to the site.

RIP Robert. You were a legend for many things, not the least of which was this:

Such a loss of a beautiful person who contributed so much to this forum. I always thought of him as the natural successor to Jack House's title of Mister Glasgow.

Hi all.

Robert's funeral will take place next Tuesday at 2PM. His family have said that friends from HG are very welcome to attend.

Please PM me if you want further details.

Very sad news indeed, loved seeing his logo as you knew you were about to read a great bit of knowledge or fantastic piece of wit.

R.I.P Robert.

I'm very sorry to hear this.
I hadn't met HH, but over the years we have occasionally corresponded via PMs.
He will be sadly missed.
RIP
He advocated for the weak against the strong, the poor against the rich and labour against capital.

Hold on! I was right behind Sharon ascending the tower but when I got to the top the lid came crashing down on my fingers then someone stood on it for 5 minutes.... Basturt!

If it wasn't for Cumbo and Fossil tending to my toilet breaks and holding the straw steady in my pint later once I got out of casualty it could have ruined the day.

Evidence is it... I'll give you evidence HH Image

case proven :D

I can't criticise his choice of literature. A classic, that is.
