Was an honour to spend time with Norris just before his fateful "energetic" game of tennis in 2004. He was always brimming with anecdotes and remembrances. And without fail would reference Ross in every conversation, a loss he described as "an amputation". Happy birthday, boys!

In 1954, Sir Hugh Beaver had the idea for a Guinness promotion based on the idea of settling pub arguments and invited twins Norris and Ross who were fact-finding researchers from Fleet Street to compile a book of facts and figures. The rest is history!
