Many years ago Sir Patrick Moore came as a guest on my television show where he thrilled the audience with his wit and knowledge and, as a great surprise, his xylophone playing ("Tributes to irreplaceable astronomer Patrick Moore", The Herald and obituary, December 10).

He was the epitome of the proper gentleman. Your cartoonist has paid him a magnificent tribute. Stunning.
