I first met Peter Trayhurn at the Hallwang clinic in Germany.
I was sitting in the dining room at the clinic, when in strode this incredibly tall man who commandeered himself a place at the table and started chatting confidently to everyone and criticising some cancer treatments he’d been researching.
I asked him who he was, and his reply was: “Pete … Peter Trayhurn.”
He obviously expected some form of recognition from me, and when I looked blankly at him, he added (with that characteristic confidence that I would come to recognise as one of his traits) before he made a dramatic exit: “read my blog.”
