David Twiston Davies, 1945-2020

RIP David Twiston Davies, 1945-2020, a Contributing Editor to The Dorchester Review since 2013.

Born in Montreal and educated in England, this charming gentleman of the old school, a great devotee of the enduring civilizational legacies of the Empire-Commonwealth, and a Roman Catholic, was best known for his output over many years at the Telegraph.co.uk where, together with Hugh Massingberd, he made an art form of enchanting and inspiring obituaries, including those of late servicemen, explorers, geniuses, and eccentrics from across the Commonwealth. I will miss his bimonthly telephone calls and contributions to the magazine. On May 3, of cancer. RIP.
