Prof Richard holmes dies

Just got this in a bulletin from RHQ:

An open Memorial Service will be held at 1430hrs on 8 June 2011 at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst Chapel. All are welcome to attend to celebrate Richard’s life.
Just in from RHQ:

Due to the numbers indicating that they will attend the Memorial Service to Brigadier Richard
any persons wishing to attend should contact RHQ PWRR on 01227 818056 or email to:
Or alternatively - say bollox to that and let the Chapel Square be filled from wall-to-wall with respectful farewell-sayers? There won't be many other officers of his generation - ARAB or STAB - to get that kind of a send off.
