I have known Brian most of my life.  He lived close by, and as a result I spent a fair amount of time with him as a pre-teenager.  My memory is of the incredible courage with whch he bore the terrible affliction that polio had left him.  He sat behind me in David Rees's standard 5, sitting alongside Garth Herselmann whilst I sat beside Gideon Cohen.  We were in the "Rogues Row", probably the worst teacher in my life.

Brian overcame all of his struggles, becoming an architect in East London.  He maintained his great sense of humour, and it was only toward the end of his life that he ever mentioned his afflictions.  I met up with him and his wonderful wife in March 2011, and am glad for having had such a great friend.
