Farewell Roy

Not the usual post, but I need to mark the passing of a good wargaming friend Roy Adams. We originally started gaming back in St Albans/Harpenden, but then the group gradually drifted apart but remained united by a periodic Gentlemen Pensioners game held in Manchester. A trawl though my archives found few pictures, mainly because I focused on the great games we all enjoyed.

Roy was a true gentleman gamer who could always see the funny side of life. He couldn't resist trying new periods and scales. Here's his Indian Mutiny game from 2013

Unfortunately his health increasing began to fail him, especially when he travelled abroad on cruises.

So I raise a glass to Roy and wish him well on his cruise in the afterlife, and condolences to his family as he will be sorely missed.
