RIP Richard Winters

Any one who has seen 'Band of Brothers' knows who Maj Winters was. Commanding officer of Easy Company, 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division on D-Day, he was made famous by the HBO series of 2001. Richard Winters died 2nd January, at the grand old age of 92. May he rest in peace and may his deeds inspire our memories for all our years in gratitude.

He came across in the series as a man of integrity and honour who cared for his men and did not seek glory.
RIP indeed.
