:: Did you Know?
After his death, Gordonís popularity grew to the point where thousands would attend his grave in the Brighton General Cemetery each year.  Most children learnt about him in the school readers up to about the start of the Second World War. Since then his popularity has waned to the extent now that most people of a younger age have never heard of Gordon, even though he has a Tablet and Bust in the Poetís Corner of Westminster Abbey, unveiled in 1934 by the Duke of York.
