Passing of a Forum member
 
I was sad to hear today that Stephen Risby “badjez” has passed away. I had communicated with Stephen in the past and always found his posts informative. A package with formation signs sent to him had just arrived but unfortunately he had passed the day prior. This being communicated to me by his wife. Let us all remember Stephen as a good fellow and collector.

Very sad news, I too had exchanged information with Stephen in the recent past and he was a stalwart member of the Military Heraldry Society and contributor to the Formation Sign and this forum.

RIP

Yes, sad news.
I met he and his wife just the once, a year or two ago when they stopped off on a short visit.
Nice people.

Stephen will be missed I'm sure by all who knew him and who he shared his knowledge with, but especially his family.

I met him a few times at Bedford Arms Fair and found him a great and knowledgeable fellow badge collector.

RIP Stephen

I met Stephen and Helen on a number of occasions both at MHS meetings and a couple of times when they came to my home when they were back visiting the Uk. We have lost a great friend of the Forum
and an enthusiastic military historian.

Very very sad news.
