GUEST,Andy Captain Birdseye (John Hewer) (8) Captain Birdseye (John Hewer/ 31 Mar 08

O.K don't panic, its not our well-known and respected 'Cap'n Birdseye', Dick Miles. He was alive and well when he gave us a great night at Kiveton Park Folk Club last week. The Times, on Saturday, announced the death of John Hewer, famous for playing Cap'n Birdseye in th T.V adverts. According to the report, in a 1993 poll, Hewer was voted the most recognised 'naval captain' after James Cook. However, this begs the question, will our own Mudcat 'Cap'n Birdseye' have to consider a change of his Mudcat handle with the passing of the figure after which he named himself? Isn't it illegal to represent a dead person?

Thanks for a good night Dick.
