Not Grip related - but help needed


Recommended Posts

Last night I recived the follwoing message from Dave Gentle: 'Joe Assirati ill in hospital can mobsters send cards to support cheer him to PAGE WARD ST THOMAS HOSPITAL   LONDON  SW1'.

He was born in 1905, making him 97, and was brother of the famous Bert Assirati. DG informs me that its a blocked bowel/gut and at his age... Can you all do your bit?

Joe's brother, Bert, passed away Aug 31, 1990.

Imagine the strongmen performers that these two

men witnessed!

For those who wish to know more about these two

fine men, please go to


and search for the Mar 1991 and Jan 1993 articles

by Smith and Thomas respectively.

Please send a card of well-wishing to Joe as Steve

asks- it is a small but meaningful gesture to a

gentleman of the game.
