Brian Edge (Peter Crummett - 3/12/2016)

Sad news. I heard from George Martin last night that Brian Edge had died yesterday morning. He had been in hospital for a short time and finally developed pneumonia. He was a major player of the Crewe & District society and the brains behind the annual Token Congress and the Crewe Coin Fairs. He will be sadly missed.
