Wiki (lol) has the microbiologist John, brother of Oliver, Postgate as having died yesterday.

Can't see owt yet , but might be worthy of further attention.

To be specific on Kara, he's a vegetarian and dying of a variant of CFJ. Known to the nationals and probably bizarre and tragic enough to snag genuine news coverage. He's already gone further than some predicted. The Mirror reckoned he had months in August last year.

Rosalind Buckland, the Rosie who inspired Laurie Lee's 'Cider With Rosie' has died days before her 100th birthday - she died on Saturday and would have been 100 tomorrow.

Notable for sure and Rosie in the book is called Rosie Burdock, so she's a passable claimant but...

Laurie Lee always claimed Rosie was a combination of characteristics from a number of girls he knew and Rosie Buckland wasn't the only one to identify herself as the source of Rosie Burdock. The BBC...
