I met Paul (as he liked to be called) and his wife, Jacqui in 1977. When I moved to Denmark in 1980, we became good friends and I spent many an hour being enthralled by his many exploits, very often accompanied by photgraphs taken at the time. A truly remarkable man who played no small part in enabling the freedoms we enjoy today. I’m very pleased to have found he has a place here on the ROH.
