I met him once at a Baycon many many years ago. He was a lovely man, and a scamp. During a panel by Michael Dorn and Jonathon Frakes, he appeared at the stage, napkin over arm, holding a tea tray, accompanied by Nicola Bryant, interrupting their panel to enquire if they might like a spot of tea. This as payback for some previous teasing about his accent. It was a priceless moment, and one of my best con memories.
You will be missed, Brigadier.
