Carry Him Home

I had a note from Andy Miller on the ‘Joe Soap’ post yesterday that Joe Stead has sadly passed away

I never met Joe but he played for Askeans just before I joined and was credited with introducing ‘Swing Low’ in rugby circles (‘Hey Joe’ post)

I’m sad to report that Joe Stead appears to have passed away last month:

I knew him slightly back in the seventies via The Tramshed in Woolwich where he would entertain or host others entertaining and one could enjoy a pint (sometimes more) of Fullers ESB or London Pride at a time they weren’t as generally available as now.
