Martin,
many thanks for that information; I'd heard that Tag had served in the commandos but didn't know any details. Do you know anything about Tag fishing in the East Riding of Yorkshire? I know he fished River Hull and probably Hornsea Mere. When I was in my late teens I went into Duncans Gun and Tackle shop in Hull and was told that I'd just missed Tag who had left the shop a couple of minutes before.
Duncan's was the shop of Stanley Duncan who founded WAGBI although it was run by his two sons at the time.
Regards,
Phil
