Cor­rec­tions and clar­i­fi­ca­tions

The Guardian - - JOURNAL -

• An obit­u­ary of Alan Aldridge (23 Fe­bru­ary, page 33) gave his date of birth as 1 June 1943 and, as a con­se­quence, his age when he died as 73. In fact, he was born on 8 July 1948. Also, Marc (not Mark) Aldridge was the artist’s son from his mar­riage to Rita Farthing, not from an­other re­la­tion­ship as we had it. And we omit­ted men­tion of Aldridge’s son James, from his mar­riage to Laura Lyons.

• An im­age of a Howard Hodgkin paint­ing used to il­lus­trate an ar­ti­cle about the artist was not Or­ange Sun­set as the cap­tion said. It was of the Hodgkin work Storm in Goa (Serota leads trib­utes to Howard Hodgkin, the mas­ter of colour, af­ter death aged 84, 10 March, page 3 ).

•A com­ment piece about Sgt Alexan­der Black­man, whose con­vic­tion for the mur­der of a Tal­iban in­sur­gent in Afghanistan was down­graded to man­slaugh­ter, said the marine’s com­man­der at the time, Col Oliver Lee, re­signed from the army in protest over its han­dling of the case. He re­signed from the navy (Black­man’s case shows the stiff up­per lip view of our sol­diers is a delu­sion, 17 March, page 39).
