A young Donald Featherstone
(swiped from the Grand Duchy of Stollen blog)
I have just read on the Old School Wargaming list that Donald Featherstone has died.
It is a sad day for us who come after - but it marks the end of a life of considerable achievement. In the little correspondence I had with him - he struck me as a man who lived a full life though one not unmarked by tragedy.
That he took the time to answer a letter from a fan despite being in his nineties demonstrates the quality of his character. I treasure it still.
In death he is reunited with those that were taken from him in life. Rest eternal grant to him O Lord and let light perpetual shine upon him and may he rest in peace.
Gentlemen, charge your bumpers.
I give you the toast - Donald Featherstone.
