If Michael was with us, he would be 64 today.
Peace to his soul.

He was always an inspiration and fueled the fires for learning and the advance of serious study of arms and armour. He worked tirelessly his entire life to compile incredible collections and passionately worked to share his knowledge here.
In that, his spirit remains powerful as ever.

I miss you my friend.

That was very thoughtful to remember him, Jim. Yes, his knowledge and unique presence is missed-

I have learned so much from his posts, am still learning to this day, and will be learning far into the future. Michael, you are missed. RIP

He was a great person and I thought what a nice idea would be to celebrate his life and his contribution to this Forum by raising his name onto what I would term our hall of fame where his key works can be listed. I think he would like to be remembered in this way.

I think that is a great idea of Ibrahiim's - to create an archive specifically of Michael's contributions to this forum for future students (and us still) to consult. Only problem, it would involve a lot of work by the moderators!
Good luck.
Neil

A very nice thought, Ibrahiim.

The more I re-read Michael's old posts, the more questions I have that I would have liked to ask him!

I agree with Ibrahim's proposal. Michael contributed a great deal to our knowledge.
