I was informed late last night that Brigadier General James Wilkes, 2/3/XX/AotC, underwent surgery for the removal of a tumor at the base of his brain. Jim, who is known on these boards as "Digglyda," resides in England and wanted to make sure that we were apprised of his situation and had his sister Shirley contact me. Her message is given below:

"Sorry to have to let you know that James is very poorly at the moment. He is in the Atkinson Morley, as he has a tumour at the base of his brain. They are operating this morning (he has just gone into theatre).

"Sorry to have to let you know like this, but James has asked us to let you know.

"Fingers crossed, they will get everything sorted out for him."


This comes as a surpise to all of us as Jim is a frequent visitor to this forum and very active officer in this club. I'm sure that you will join me in extending our best wishes to him. I have asked his sisters to keep me informed as they can.

I am stunned and shocked. I have talked to James on a regular basis over the last few years not only is he a member of this club but he is also a member of the Old Banshee Team. He has produced some brilliant stuff and his attention to detail is second to none. I wish him all the best and a speedy recovery. Get well soon man.

What a wonderfully devoted gamer and delightful PBEM character. I am sure I join the entire ACWGC in sending out best wishes for a very speedy recovery.

I am playing JIm in Chancellorsville. He is a very good player. I went behind him to use the Rappahannock between us, because he drove through my line at Fredercksburg so well. I was wandering where he went, he was so prompt. I pray for his quick recovery.
