Follow the link to the obituary from the Daily Telegraph. Another character goes off to the Tarzan Course in the sky. Rest well.

A truly inspiring character who I'm sure will be greatly missed by family and friends.

Our condolences to them.

Canny man - as said - an inspiration. AND one of the best of 22.
God speed over the bar.

May he enjoy his after life as he enjoyed this one.

Chronology of the obit is a bit suspect, but then he wouldn't have been around to get it right would he?

The guy certainly got around a bit! Wonder what he's up to now? No doubt fully enjoying his new posting!

Another time, at dead of night, his wife, who did not share his enthusiasm, was an unwilling accomplice in the capture of Georgie Girl, a 25 ft python. She held a candle while Edwardes wrestled with the monster in the darkness.
What a man, he seems to have fitted two lifetimes worth of experience in just one
