    I am so very sad to hear this. I sent him a message a little while ago as I hadn't seen him posting - I had no idea he was ill.

    I will remember and cherish our meeting in Vlissingen, last November. An extremely nice gentleman. I feel honoured to have met him.

    My condolences to his family.

    Very sorry to hear the news. It seems that he was still writing fluently on here up to a week or 2 ago. And his posts were always so interesting , he was sharp and clear-thinking right to near the end.
    Condolences to his family.

    Just found out about Joe's death and can only echo the sentiments above. Only a few weeks ago I visited the Buffalo "Snipe" memorial on Walcheren he was partly responsible for. He was a model member of this forum, always being polite, interesting and informative. I'll miss reading his posts.

    I read the news about Joe's passing this morning and must admit to then being lost for words; choked in fact.

    Didn't know him, exchanged only a few posts with him, avidly read his threads and his own blog. All I can say, nay repeat, is that he had a massive impact on this Forum (me included) in the short time he was with us. I echo what Tom Canning, Ron Goldstein, some of the Mods and others have said about the 'man'. I/We will miss him.

    RIP Major Joe Brown.

    Joe's posts and his memoirs will serve as a fitting memorial to him on here.
