Reg Dean's son said he had always believed an "elixir" given to him in India may have played a hand in his longevity.
A friend of my father's said he would like to give him an elixir to drink, which he said would mean he would suffer no illness until he was over 100.
It was foul-tasting, but of course he never thought not to drink it - he just did.
The only real illness my father then had was the infection last year, which left him bed-ridden and which eventually got him.
