John Mollo, RIP

Postby Ronan the Librarian » Tue Nov 07, 2017 9:35 pm

John Mollo, author of a number of books on military history and uniforms, and costume designer/consultant on several films, has died in a care home in Wiltshire, England, on October 25th. He was 86 and the older brother of Andrew and Boris. I would suspect that many of us have at least one of his books (probably either the AWI or SYW uniform tomes, illustrated by Malcolm McGregor and published by Blandford) and have certainly seen at least one of the films he worked on (which started with "The Charge of the Light Brigade" and went via "Star Wars", "Alien", "Revolution" and "Zulu Dawn", through to the "Hornblower" series).

A talented man. Rest in peace.

Not sure if this is the correct thread for this (if not, please feel free to move it), but given how many of us are "of a certain age" and probably cut our wargaming/painting teeth on one or other of his books, I thought we should acknowledge his passing.
