It is my sad duty to inform you all of the death yesterday of Paddy Griffith. I gather that he suffered a heart attack and was taken to hospital but did not survive.
Paddy, as many readers will know, had many credits to his name. Here are just a few: he was a founding member of Wargame Developments, the author of many books on military subjects, a TV star ('Game of War' in the late 1990s) and more recently ran an number of Special Interest days at IWM Duxford.
I am grateful to Martin Wallace (who was told by Tim Cockitt) for emailing me with this news. Paddy's wife, Genevieve also rang me, although I was out at a meeting at the time. I am hoping to be able to speak to her later in the day.
I will disseminate futher information as I receive it.
