Lord Cheshire, founder of the Memorial Found for Disaster Relif, died of motor neurone disease on July 31. He was 74. After his wartime career as a bomber pilot, for which he won the Victoria Cross, Cheshire established homes for the disabled in 45 countries. He is survived by his wife and two children.
In 1990, Roger Waters said of Cheshire:
"He demonstrates a complete lack of selfishness, extraordinary energy and loads of compassion."
