I lived in Melbourne between 1978 and 1982 and used to game at the League of Ancients, Nunawading and Frankston (while it existed).

I'm trying to track down a very dear friend, David Couper – he used to live in Somerville and was one of the most amazing painters and figure converters of his day (he was also a fabulous chef). Would anyone know how to contact him?

I would to get back in touch with him down as I hope to get out to Melbourne next year and re-live some happy memories.

Try a post on the current League of Ancients Forum its 99% Melbourne guys from the look of it so if anyone would know of him I'd guess one of them would…good luck!

Good luck in your search – there are two Couper's (initials M and R) in the white pages in Somerville – might be worth giving them a go – it's not that common a name.
