Paul is now in Hellysium
This is terrible news Confusedhock: As many I knew him only from his posts, but even then you get the feeling to know a person in some way. It's terrible to loose such a man.

As many I wished to meet him some day, all that rest me now are my condolences to his family and friends Cry

I am always sorry to hear that someone has passed away from this world.
I hope, he now gets the kind of afterlive he would have liked to stay in.

This sucks, I just got back from a week-end excursion to find this terrible news. All the best to his family, I really enjoyed what Paul had to say on this forum as a moderator and a member.

I'll miss his posts, and his personality greatly.

Like most people on RAT I have never met Paul. Paul and I did exchange a number of e-mails, and he was most thoughtful in sending me things of interest. He was a gentleman and scholar in every sense of the word.

His passing was most unfortunate. More than most, he left the world a better place for his efforts, and he did enjoy doing so.

With great regrets,

I am terribly sorry to hear about Paul's passing. Cry Not only was he a great contributor to RomanArmyTalk's Greek forum, as the promoter of the International Ancient Greek Festival Paul brought Greek re-enactment to a new dimension.

I will never forget the little battle Paul and I had after the first kid vs adult battle during the Festival last year.

My condolences to his family and his friends.

some Swedish pancake in a purloined panoply lop their lower limbs off!

Quote:I too only knew Paul from RAT where he was a stable and dedicated member of our Greek section. I am very sorry to hear about his passing and my thoughts are with his friends and family. RAT is a poorer place without him.
I could not have said this better. I am sorry to hear this sad news. My thoughts are for his family.

We all at Athenea Promakhos are deeply sorrow for this terrible loss.
We had the luck of forming with him at the phalanx when he came to Spain to join us at Tarraco Viva.
Although he only spent a couple of days by us we where impressed by his vast knowledge, desire to of helping us and goodmanhood, we are very impressed.

Paul, for sure well meet again, taking the spear embracing the shield and forming in the phalanxs.

Been out of the loop and only just heard about Paul's tragic accident.

I met paul years ago and recently renewed our aquaintance through the Vicus. A fine, honourable man and the world is demiished by his passing.

My thoughts go out to his family and will raise a glass to him at the weekend with others who knew him.

May he rest in peace.
