I recall arranging the first "tour" of Partridge's hook making facility in the UK. Alan was kind to provide his time and staff for the visit even though he was mystified why someone would be interested.The staff were quite surprised that someone would actually want a tour of the plant and were enthusiastic. Subsequent years saw others given a tour as well. He also arranged for some time on 'quality' water in the UK through his connections in the industry. I still have the photos somewhere.

Alan was a true gentleman.
