Yesterday we lost one of the founding fathers of Wargaming, Donald Featherstone. I've had the pleasure of being one of the 'yanks' who had the pleasure of 'chatting up' Donald at one of his HMGS visits as well as attending one of his talks. We all owe a great deal to this man for what he added to our hobby. As president of our wargaming club for the upcoming year I think I'll make one of our game nights themes 'Featherstone' night hopefully bringing in some of the old-school games for the evening.
If you haven't had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Featherstone, here's a nice YouTube video of him chatting about various wargaming topics.
