So sorry to hear of Terry's passing. I only really got to know Terry over the past four or five years and enjoyed his company.He was a man of immense photographical knowledege and what he did not know about alternative processes was not worth knowing.I was hoping to learn so much more from Terry in the coming years,but sadly that is not to be.A lovely man who I will miss so much.

So very sorry to hear this. I used to see a lot of Terry when I was at the RPS from 1982-2001 & eventually got very fond of him, after a few earlier run-ins!  His health was never good and he discovered he had wheat allergies which had made him ill for years.  He was always enthusiastic, if not always necessarily in the right direction, but had great perseverance & commitment & he could talk for England!  After spending many years in the Civil Service, it was good that he spent the last few decades of his life doing something that made him happy.  I feel he will be rather unforgettable.
