Way off topic I know, (Well was a PBY navigator with the RNZAF during WW2) but just wanted to post something for a true legend thats passed.

A giant in both stature and heart.
Will be sadly missed by many.

Most will know his name for his acheivement on Mt Everest in 1953, but many more will remember him for his humanitarian work in the years after.

S! "Sir Ed" RIP

S! And a good occasion to homage also his friend and co-adventurer, Tenzing Norgay, who reached his life peak almost 22 years before Sir Edmund.

Wish a good climb for both of them!
