I've just found out about the death of John Mollo, who will be well known to many gamers as the author of numerous books on military uniforms. According to The Times on 28th Oct, Mr. Mollo died 'from the effects of vascular dementia on October 25th 2017, aged 86.' The details are in the paper's obituary section. I hadn't realised that Mr. Mollo won an Oscar for costume design for the first Star Wars film. His first involvement with films was as an adviser on Tony Richardson's Charge of the Light Brigade - a film I really enjoyed - no wonder the uniforms looked so right.
