I was lucky enough to be at an undergrad history lecture at Cambridge given by Hinsely in 1995. Sadly, being a waster undergrad, I had little idea of how important he was. Does anyone know whether he's still there?

You may be aware of this by now, but Harry Hinsley died (of lung cancer, I believe) in 1998. He made a great contribution during World War Two.
