70th Brigade Update
It is with sincere regret that we have learned of the death, last October, of Colonel Oliver Warman, Welsh Guards - retired. Colonel Warman acted as John Dixon's guide during his research visit to Northern France and Normandy and was of very considerable assistance in navigating to the various locations in which 70th Infantry Brigade was involved in the two campaigns, as well as discussing, in detail, the military strategy aspects. This formed a key part of the HLF-funded project.

John had just completed uploading the photographs taken during the trip, together with the associated background information on the various places to the Memorial Website, and had composed a message to Colonel Warman to thank him for his help, and show him the results of their efforts, when he became aware - belatedly - of his death notice in The Times in early October 2017 at the age of 85.

Our sincere condolences go to his family and friends, together with our apology for not being aware earlier of his sad demise.
