    I notice that Colonel John Waddy, commander of B Company, 156 Parachute Battalion during the battle of Arnhem, died on 27 September. RIP.

    From years gone by, happy memories, good people, kind people, always personable and personal (and their Christmas card list must have run into the hundreds, if not thousands)

    Plus, for the younger folks who may not have seen it before a good look at Colonel John doing one of the many things he loved, courtesy of YT.

    Fondly remembered, always. Not forgotten.
