Condolences to the family and great thanks for giving his friends and readers, via Max, the opportunity to express their thanks for his life.
The late Captain Haddock was a prolific commenter but also ran several blogs that carried detailed information about his interests which he illustrated beautifully.
Opinion and investigations - Something Fishy
The Captain's sea angling blog, Fishy Fishy contains, in the first comments, a poignant conversation with another much-missed writer, Mutley The Dog.
His great love of Wiltshire was chronicled and particularly beautifully photographed in his blog Wiltshire Flag.
May he rest in peace, which he loved so much.
I'm most humbled by your gracious comments ...but it's a case of mistaken identity....another Captain Haddock....who I have seen from time to time around the blogs...
Apologies. My condolences to the family of the other Captain Haddock, but rejoicing that this one is still with us.
