Another sad loss - Bill Porter

Post by Brian » Wed Jul 29, 2020 7:10 pm

Bill Porter passed away after a brief battle with Cancer.
Bill was one of the leading experts on many bayonets, especially USA bayos, and lots of experimental and rare bayos. Well known for "Porter's Page" http://www.usmilitaryknives.com/porters_page.htm and anywhere rare bayos were discussed.
RIP Bill, and thanks for all the info and advice.

Sorry to hear that news, especailaly having just gone through chemotherpay and an operation earlier this year myself, after being diagnosed with Oesphagus cancer last October.

Thankfully the surgeons appear to have operated early enough on me, so I am hoping to have a few years life left in me yet.

Stay safe
Richard

I never corresponded with Bill. Sadly now, a forever missed opportunity to do such. RIP Bill.

Glad to hear you're doing well, Richard!
