Gordon Smith passes...

Postby dunmunro » Mon Dec 19, 2016 7:42 pm

Gordon Smith, creator of Naval-History.Net, died peacefully on 16 December 2016 aged 75.

Gordon started the site in 1998, initially with books he had written on the Royal and Dominion Navies of World War 2.
Over the following 18 years, Gordon massively expanded the site to include a wide range of naval history research.
This allowed often hard-to-find and difficult-to-interpret contemporary accounts to be made readily available.
The website was central to Gordon's life.
Through it he was able to pursue his most important goal: to memorialize the brave sailors who served.

Gordon will be missed dearly by his family and friends.

Smith's work has been invaluable in illuminating the modern history of the Royal and Commonwealth Navies.

He has most certainly made his mark and is owed a great debt of gratitude for placing this great resource at our fingertips. I hope it will be maintained. May he R.I.P.
