Death of Sydney Jary, author of "18 Platoon"

Sydney Jary, author of the book "18 Platoon" (not only a "must have" for CoC players, but still given to all Sandhurst entrants), died earlier this month. For those not familiar with him, here is his obituary from The Times:-

I suspect his book will now be in high demand, so this may be useful - way below the £40+ of most other book dealers:-

Rest easy, sir.

Finally got my own copy only a few months ago, via Rifles Direct.

Very sorry to hear of his passing.
