"Despite this loss..."[edit]

Muir suffered a spontaneous medical condition requiring the surgical removal of one testicle. Despite this loss, he later fathered two children.

Oh come on. Does anyone think the loss of a testicle would make him unable to father children? Or is this meant to be funny in some way? Flapdragon (talk) 10:54, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

It's not in the article now, however I think he said it in his autobiography, A Kentish Lad, and definitely himself meant it ironically. Si Trew (talk) 07:43, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Forename[edit]

Was his first name really Frank, not Francis? I have read his autobiography A Kentish Lad but gave it away to someone else so can't check. Si Trew (talk) 02:00, 22 April 2014 (UTC)

The only mention of his full name in A Kentish Lad is on page 15. 'Granny did not languish long as a young widow. She soon married the son of an inspector of lighthouses for Trinity House, Frank Herbert Webber, after whom I was christened (I could have done without the Herbert).' His entry in the DNB has 'Frank' (http://www.oxforddnb.com/index/69/101069233/) as did every one of his newspaper obits, so I think it's a pretty safe assumption it's Frank.
