Tributes and memories:

Gerald Mowbray: Very sad to hear of Herbert’s death. He was a very good and supportive friend and work colleague at the Mirror and later at The European. I’m sure that many will miss his thoughtful and wry humour – as I will…

Bill Hagerty: A wonderful friend and a clever bugger – when I first worked with him at the Mirror he was the only member of the staff – and possibly in Fleet Street – who spoke Russian, learned during National Service in the Army Intelligence Corps. Прощай, Herbert.

John Garton: A sweet, sweet man. Liked him a lot.

Mike Molloy: Herbert was one of the very few gentleman journalists I ever knew. Funny, kind, and a master of our trade. He also knew the lyrics of every number in The Great American Songbook. Truly a man with a song in his heart.

David Nathanson: I was a long time colleague of Herbert from Mirror Mag to Mirror features… sadly missed by many, I’m certain.

Caro:  He was special to me. RIP Herbert x.

Alex Collinson: Intelligent, urbane and charming hardly do justice to Herbert. He was a valued friend and ally during the dark days (and nights) on the Mirror when hot metal was yielding slowly and painfully to new tech. I am so sorry.
