It was a deep honour to get to know Cyril, albeit by correspondence only. He was an exceptional man, like others of that unique generation. May He rest in Peace. Ann Robins (Brussels).

It was a pleasure and an honour to have known you Cyril. God bless.

Miss Denise Hudson

Cyril was a humble D-Day and Artic Convoy hero and friend and he enriched the lives of all who were lucky enough to meet him. We will never see the like of him again and it was an honour to have known him in his later years.
