I have just heard the sad news that Bob Maloubier, one of the last SOE agents has died aged 92.
I had the pleasure of meeting him in 2012 at the 68th anniversary of the Liberation of Limoges and within a minute you felt like you had known him all your life. He joked with me saying that the Times over in London had just contacted him saying they had his obituary ready. He replied "could you delay it for as long as possible please". Sadly nearly three years later that obituary can now be printed.
Our sincere condolences go to his family and friends, he will be truly missed.
