Jim described the hmoving scene in his autobiography, Mercury And Me.
He wrote: “That summer Freddie posed for a camera for the very last time – mine.
“It happened like this. I was out in the garden photographing some of the flowers in full bloom and Freddie walked towards me.
“I trained the lens on – he wanted to move back a bit so it wasn’t a close-up.”
It is rather heartbreaking when Jim explains why his his beloved Freddie, once the greatest showman and attention seeker, did not want to get too close.
