    My grandmother was a good friend of Grey Owl. He was from Hastings and my grandmother was from Bexhill which is right next to Hastings. They would go for walks together and he stayed with her for a while. Like Grey Owl, I am also a great beaver lover. Thanks for making the film available. - David
