J. P Roberts.

Lets remember those who have passed on

J. P Roberts.

I am not sure if this should go here as I have no way of knowing if this gentleman Mr J. P Roberts of Epsom Auckland is still with us or not. However I suspect that given the age of the article (late 1950's??) that he is no longer with us.
I came across this in a clean up this week and before throwing it out thought some of our Auckland members may be interested in it.

Note the quoted price of a VC group way back then.

Also note that the article published Mr Roberts’s home address. These days it may invite unwanted attention, but that was another time and another era.

I wonder if anyone living now remembers this gentleman.
