Funeral Service - Major Tony Hibbert MBE MC

 

Major Tony Hibbert MBE MC, who has died aged 96, called himself the “Maverick Major” — and with good reason. He played a spirited role in the botched operation to capture the Arnhem bridge over the Rhine and later led the mission to seize the German port of Kiel ahead of the Russians, effectively barring them from marching into Denmark. Major Hibbert passed away peacefully at home with his family on Sunday 12th October 2014.
