Duquemin, Len As a young boy I worked for Len in his paper shop situated rounded the corner from where I lived. I remember him as a huge man with huge hands but a big heart. Even in the days when I turned up late, not unusual for me as a boy, he took it in his stride and never got angry. A true gentleman.
