Just to confirm that Col Andre died last night. I am trying to help his daughter Madeline get the word passed out through the various CF organizations that were affected by Col Andy's service, artwork and great character. To that end could one of you Airborne lads make sure your association is aware. All maroon berets have a Gauthier.

Bill Oliver - I know the good Colonel was an honourary member of RMC Class of 1974 and that the College displays about 60 pieces of his work. Could you let the Class President '74 know and pass the sad news to Rod MacDonald and any of the College staff that you think need or would wish to know?

Richard Milot - I think Col Gauthier was held in high regard by your Regiment. Can you please contact your Regimental Association?

Wee Donnie Corbett and Mark Hutchings- not sure if Madeline will want a piper, but...? His work "On Vimy" is a PWOR hallmark statuette I believe.

Anything that will help pass the word, and perhaps alert all and sundry of the funeral next Thursday would be appreciated, I'm sure. Note that Bernie Wright is in touch with the MP association and JoJo Mansfield has contacted CFPM.

Ubique...dmk - Bill Tremain
