He was known as the English Giant, but could also have been called the Friendly Giant.    He was Frederick John Kempster, and he joined Astley and Company's American Circus at Chigwell in Essex as a professional giant in June 1911 - not as a "freak" but because he loved people.    "It is said he was a happy, well-adjusted chap who liked to talk to the public," said his great-nephew Jim Kempster.
