Past Master James became a Liveryman of the Coachmakers’ Company in 1975 and was elected and installed as the Master in 1996, continuing to be an active member of the Court for many years thereafter. He was extremely generous and a popular member of the Company.

He had not enjoyed good health for some time and had become increasingly frail since the beginning of the year, although he had still managed to get out locally to eat and drink until the last week of his life. However, he was disappointed that due to Covid he hadn’t been able to attend any Livery dinners for such a long time. He will be much missed.
