An Irishman's Diary on Spike Milligan

Most appropriately, he penned his own epitaph, which appears on his headstone in the graveyard of the church of St Thomas in Winchelsea. After the church authorities had demurred at his own choice of inscription, which was "I told you I was ill", he had it translated into Irish, which apparently evaded any possible censorship on grounds of taste, and still reads: "Dúirt mé leat go raibh mé breoite."
