SIR - In his latter years, Harry Leslie Smith came to public attention and he had many profound and wise things to say about his life experiences and the current state of things in Britain, both vocally and in print.

His book, Harry's Last Stand, is one I will continue to treasure and, on its own, is a wonderful, very positive legacy. Hopefully, it will prove an inspiration for many others who will also 'discover' it in the future. Condolences to his family, friends and all who knew him personally.
