Farewell to Alex

Have received the sad news that my old trade union colleague Alex Gilchrist has died. We were both activists in Prospect (trade union for professionals, managers and specialists, previously IPMS/IPCS) and were involved in industrial relations within the Ministry of Defence). He had a no-nonsence negotiation style with management and often accused me of being too soft in my dealings (sometimes true). A colourful character and very much missed.
