Ron Flowers has sent on this very sad news of the death of Sir Richard. Many of us will remember this 'dashing' Officer from our time in Paderborn.
I received an email yesterday from a relative of my wife. He was a school friend of Sir Richard Dashwood Bart. and had been friends with him since then.
He informed me that "Dicky" as we knew him from the regiment but "Bart" (short for Baronet) as he knew him had passed away on Sunday 14th April.
I enquired if the family would be happy for this to be published on NOAHS ARC and he said that his son Sir Fred Dashwood had asked that the information be passed on to all that knew him.
