Sad news today with the announcement of 'MRD' Foot's death, at the age of 92.

Michael Richard Daniell Foot was asked if he would write the history of the SOE in France, after Harold Wilson 'authorised the inception of research' in 1958. He later wrote numerous accounts of the SOE and had been a regular speaker and guest at conferences ever since.

I met 'MRD' Foot (he was rarely addressed as Michael) on a number of occasions during my seminar attendances and found him to be a very pleasant, but frail man, with an extremely sharp mind.
