Sad news. He was also my Grandad's (mum's side) CO during the landings

Rest in Peace.
He was my mum's Pin up along with john Wayne.
I must admit I did like his films, and he as you say was a vet.
RIP.

Always one of my favourites, and always a gentleman, his nonchalent comments on the 60th anniversary, playing down his actual part in D-Day were typical. Made some cracking films, let's hope one of the main channels does a season of his work.
RIP Richard Todd.

Good actor and epitome of an Englishman with the stiff upper lip, both on screen and off. Had a tragic personal life, 2 of his sons committed suicide.

The man was a legend in my opinion. He was a good soldier and a great actor. Proper old school type.

My Father served with him in 7L.I. Para during the second world war and spoke well of him as an officer and gent. He fortunately outlived my Dad by a few years but he always attended the reunions.
RIP
