Jim Booth's passing

    For those older modellers among us, the sad news came yesterday that Jim Booth, a well- respected Historex modeller has passed on from complications due to C-19.
    He was a man of rare wit and charm, always there with words of advice and encouragement. Several of his pieces were pictured in the old Historex catalogues, and he was a frequent award winner in many competitions. Some of his tales of his time in the army had the taste of a "Carry On" film, but he would fix you with those baby blue eyes and swear it was true.
    I extend sincere condolencies to his dear family and many friends.. Until the next time, mate.

    He was "before my time" I think, but it's always sad to hear about one of our community passing on.
