I Knew Jeff for many years. We shared a passion for history and the collecting of British decorations and campaign medals but especially for the stories of the men behind the medals. For both Jeff and I history was note about captains and kings but was about the everyday men and women who did the history on a daily basis throughout their lives. Jeff's truly magnificent mind had a wonderful ability to make these stories come alive in the most detailed, unique and interesting ways. Jeff will be greatly missed by me.

We were very sorry to hear of Jeff's passing. He was a longtime customer of our bookstore, and I'll miss his phone calls. He was certainly very knowledgeable and had a good sense of humor to go with his intellect. He'll be missed.

Sorry and surprised to hear of Jeff's death. As a fellow collector and military researcher I stay in close contact with him for many years, He helped me with my research with his fabulous library and sold me some magnificent medals. He will be missed.
