  7. Popped into a Cretan village this year as part of family hols and the Cretan old boy and taverna owner, on hearing of my Britishness(!) took my water bottle and filled it with the local hooch, and refused payment.

    Clearly the exploits of people like Forrester have left a lasting legacy where he and his ilk served.

    In Memoriam Sir.
     
  8. RIP - we are proud of you
     
  9. RIP Sir
     
  10. RIP Sir
     
  11. I believe the General also had FOUR Mentions in Despatches. I was in 4 Div when he was GOC. In the dark one night I was gossiping about this and that with a 'stranger' only to discover the stranger was the GOC. No wonder the Nazis had 'Bob Hope or No Hope' with men like General Forrester and the men he led prowling about.
     
  12. A true warrior, may he rest in peace.
