Dear Friends and members,
Many of you will remember the talk given by Professor Jim Riordan on Stalin’s British victims. Sadly, Jim died peacefully in the early hours of Saturday morning, having suffered from a brain tumour. He is featured as one of four or five people mentioned during the Radio 4 obituary programme entitled ‘Last Word’, which will be repeated on Sunday at 8.30 pm (originally broadcast at 4 pm today). I think you could also listen again to the programme via the internet.
Jim’s funeral will be held near Portsmouth on 28 February: I can supply details for anyone interested – please just email me.
