I have just seen this after going back to a post that Max helped me with. In fact he helped me on many more.
I cannot add anymore to the comments others have made, he was a true gentleman.
My condolences to the family .

Good Afternoon,

RIP MaxD, you will be sorely missed on rootschat. Your knowledge of matters military was second to none.

Having only just returned to the site after a long absence I am so very sad to hear of your loss.

Your Grandfather helped me on many occasions with my research and I am extremely grateful.

Please accept my sincere condolences.

Kind regards
Eileen

I have been wondering for a while why I wasnt seeing responses to people's queries from MaxD and so today did a bit of delving - I was saddened to read a message from his granddaughter that he had died. I would just like to record how very grateful I have been on many occasions for his helpful responses to my queries. RIP MaxD

I would just like to agree fully with the sentiments expressed by Brewins girl. Max was an exceptionally helpful person here on Rootschat, assisting me personally on several occasions. He is most assuredly missed.

I am saddened to read this news having just seen this post & I'd like to add my condolences to Zoe & MaxD's extended family.

Max was a specialist on the Armed Forces board & has left a legacy of his knowledge for others.

Although I've contributed to threads Max was on, I also found info. from many of his posts very helpful to myself.

RIP Max, your contributions will be missed.
