Sad news sorry to hear this I have known Rod for many years even before he was a dealer I used to take him to Wallis and Wallis for items for his Hampshire collection He knew to which regiment that I collected to and when he was a dealer never bid against me even if the item was very cheap He was always happy to chat and help with identification of items-before internet days

That is sad news. Like others in the previous posts I learnt a lot from Rod and always found him extremely helpful & honourable. If anyone is in contact with his family please pass along my most sincere condolences.
