Donald Featherstone died yesterday at his home. While many of you will already be aware of this and have seen tributes on other blogs, it's only proper that I mark his passing with a small tribute of my own. Donald was a titan of the wargaming hobby, having organised the UK' first ever wargaming convention. He was also the author of over 40 books on the hobby (including military history texts). He was also co-editor of an early wargamng newsletter at a time when the hobby was an even smaller niche interest than it is today.
He is one of just a very few leading figures in the wargaming hobby with his own very own wikipedia entry, which you can read: here.
