Requiescat in pace.
Odd how connected one can get to someone through the ether.
Sad news indeed, R.I.P Gerry.
I turned up a number of Gerry's old posts last year and found some very useful material.
Sad to see he has gone.
May he rest in peace.
Very sad news - my condolences to Gerry's family and friends. R.I.P.
I am out in Italy guiding the NIH Association at Cassino and on the Hitler Line next week.
No doubt we will toast Gerry Chester at some point during the event. Everybody seemed to know him.
Sad news, my condolences to family and friends.
You will be sorely missed by many.
Sincere Condolences to family and friends.
My condolences to his family and friends.
RIP Gerry your duties done
Condolences to his family and friends
Having passed a link to this thread to Gerry's son, I received this quick response that I hope he doesn't my quoting from.
"Thanks so much for this. It is really wonderful to read the warm tributes to dad on the page. He was almost 97, and although he really wanted to reach 100 it was a good end. No matter though how old he was, or how expected, death still hits hard. Really grateful to you all for your kindness.
With best wishes,
Thank you so much for honoring my father what a lovely photograph of you all
Thank you all so much for your condolences they are so appreciated. Our father was passionate about the North Irish Horse. We will all miss him terribly may he rest in peace now
Good to see you have joined the forum and that you liked the pic.
I have also passed the sad news to ARRSE, a site on which your dear Dad was much admired because of his military expertise
The Battle of Normandy
Thinking of Gerry on what would have been his 97th birthday.
I don't know how I missed this back in March.
Godspeed, Mr. Chester. You were well thought of over here in the States.
