Default Bernhard H. Holst

With great sadness I heard today that Bernhard Holts (screen name bhholts) has passed at the age of 86.
Whoever knew Bernhard could not but acknowledge that he was a gentleman and a great historian. He was always helpfull and is a loss for the forum, which he joined in April 2001 as one of the earlies members.

We will miss him and I will keep him in mind as the very nice person and friend he was.

Thanks for sharing, Dietrich. Bernhard was indeed a gentleman and VERY knowledgeable historian. He was a great help to me in the past and recently responded that his health was failing and that he could no longer be of assistance. The hobby just lost a great member and contributor.

My thoughts are with him and his family!

Very interesting guy with many different life experiences to talk about. He was in the Jungvolk then later in Indo-China with the French foreign legion.

He was an avid collector.

Everyone that knew him liked him and I am happy to have considered him a friend. I will miss him...
