Moira Peters and Family send our affectionate condolences to Becky and the Rothwell Family. We have many happy memories of their visit to Melbourne a few years ago and the fun times with Ed Kirby and Family.
Vale Colonel Richard Rothwell
To the Rothwell Family.
Please accept my condolences. I proudly served under Colonel Rothwell in the 2nd battalion throughout all of our landings with the 4th Marine Division. A respected and a fine leader.

To the Rothwell family, we will sorely miss the Colonel! Please accept our condolences.
I felt privilaged to be able to work with him on his auto-biography that I posted on the website www.hq224usmc.com honoring him and his men from World War 2. He is a true American Hero in the true sense of the word. My father Sgt Padell, looked up to the Colonel and was proud to serve him in the 4th Marine Division.
