Wor Jimmy.

JIMMY Forsyth was seen about often; recognisable without a doubt For Jimmy's best friend was his camera, which he was never seen without The Seeing Eye of this camera helped Jimmy make his mark A Brownie began the lifelong hobby on which he was to embark Places and images preserved in a flash, children at play, folk in their prime Captured for posterity; masterpieces; 'stills' of moments in time A historic record for future generations A collection of memories in photo compilations A profile of life as he saw it; as revealed in his books' pages The character Jimmy Forsyth shall be missed by friends of all ages Now Jimmy has gone but his time on earth; is shown in his legacy of priceless worth.
