This is rather sad

Yes, of course, one cannot regard the death of the great M. R. D. Foot, war-time SAS veteran, historian of the secret war and especially of the SOE, writer, lecturer and (to my astonishment) editor of Gladstone's letters, at the age of 92 as tragic but it is still sad. Somehow I assumed he would go on for ever. Whenever I heard him speak or read his latest articles I felt that death would not come for this spry, upright gentleman who assured people that the key to staying healthy was to walk several miles every day.
