PeterTForsythRIP P. T. Forsyth
“At the end of the [First World) War [Forsyth] was over seventy; yet he was so completely active in mind that no question of his retiring had arisen. But soon afterwards, in addition to his lifelong physical weakness, an insideous wasting disease manifested itself. He struggled gallantly against a gradual dulling of his powers and faculties, and would not give in until the end of 1920. For nearly a year he was a complete invalid, fighting a losing battle. His strong heart kept him alive, though in utter weakness and weariness. At last he drifted away unconsciously at dawn on the fourth Armistice Day – November 11th, 1921.”
