    There’s news going around that the proprietor of Navwar, Tony Anderson, has died.

    If true, it’s very sad news indeed. Tony has been around for over 50 years as Navwar, and as everyone knows he refused to submit to the digital age.

    Truly, the end of an era.

     

    Obvious contrarian and passive aggressive old prat, who is taken far too seriously by some and not seriously enough by others.

    I heard it from a mate who had seen a Faceache post from David Manley. He has been regularly in touch with Tony so likely reliable.

    Tony was so far out of date that he usually got product to customers faster than many of the companies using ‘modern’ tech. I checked my chequebook when I put the last order in a few months ago; it has only been used for Navwar orders for the last 4 years but still reliable and easy.

    I’m sure our condolences go out to his family.

    Tony of TTT

    Sad news. I bought lots of the H&R stuff when he ran it but never quite as many ships as I intended. I admired his refusal to pander to ecommerce, although he would have had more naval order off me in recent times I suspect if he had capitulated. As Tony indicated above any delays were at my end not his.

    Condolences to all family and friends.

    If David Manley says it’s true then it is.

    RIP Tony, and condolences to his family.

    Tony was a scholar and a gentleman and I will miss those occasional lost Saturday afternoons where I phoned to “quickly” check some detail or other and spent an hour, or more, in fascinating conversation.

    My condolences to his friends and family.
