Diana Birch

Posted on Mon, 11 May 2015 by Phil Mussell - General News, Medal News

It was with great sadness that we learn of the death of Diana Birch on Wednesday May 6 following a long battle with cancer. Diana was a true "stalwart" of the medal hobby and was well known to many of us both through her own company, Savannah Publications, and also as one of the authors of the latest edition of British Battles and Medals and the former editor of MEDAL NEWS and its forerunner MEDALS INTERNATIONAL. She continued working with us here at Token as a consultant and regularly contributed to the magazine, in particular ON PARADE. A full obituary will appear in a forthcoming issue.

RIP Diana
