It was with much shock and sadness that I yesterday learned of the death of Ian Daglish (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-14357758) following the plane he was flying crashing into houses in Salford on Friday. Ian was a great part of the British and International ASL community, a regular at tournaments, a great scenario designer and a respected author. You only need to read the various threads related to this sad news on the ASL Forums at Gamesquad to see the high regard in which he was held.
I can’t claim to know Ian as well as many of the UK players but at each of the Heroes and Intensive Fire tournaments I attended Ian was always friendly and helpful, easy to talk to, knowledgeable and a pleasure to play. There are few people for whom the phrase ‘a scholar and a gentlemen’ truly applies but Ian was one of them. He’ll be greatly missed and my condolences go out to his friends and family.
