We’re sad to report the death of Bill Phelps of the 9th Battalion, towards the end of January. My understanding is that he died peacefully in his sleep, while watching the cricket. Bill did not serve with the 9th Battalion in Normandy, but accompanied us on a number of Normandy pilgrimages. He was a quiet, humble man, and kept himself to himself.
If anyone has stories or pictures of Bill that they can share, it would be great to get more details of his story onto the website. Thanks to Nathalie V for the photos.
