    I am the daughter of Richard Gray who I know many of you may of spoken to on this forum over the years

    Unfortuantely my Dad passed away in August 2017, and I am now in the process of going through all his war research note and websites in order to add them all to a memorial website I have created in his honour, so that all his many hours of research do not go to waste

    Upon logging in to this forum I have seen many of you talked to him so thought you would like to be informed a) about his death and b) about the website I have created in his memory

    Please take a look - Welcome

    My condolences to you and the rest of the family.

    Sad news but thank you for letting us know. So often others just disappear from the forum never to be heard of again.

    Good luck with the website and your endeavours.

    I didn't connect the obituary and condolences even so long after the event.
    Your website will be a fitting and lasting tribute and his work will not be wasted, I'm sure
    I'm only sorry I did not know him better.

    My only interaction with your father was by reading his posts here and I had no idea that he had passed away.
    The website is a great idea and I'm glad you've gone to all the trouble to put his research out in public.
