W swych wlasnych slowach w Driel w 2006 roku, Major Tony Hibbert powiedzial:

"Moj text ktory zostal napisany na tablicach tego pomnika, zawiera wyrazne stwierdzenie, ze dymisja Generala (Sosabowskiego) byla faktem nie sprawiedliwym i to spowodowalo mi ze strony tzw establishment  troche powaznych klopotow.  Jednak ja chcialem im wyraznie pokazac, ze Polacy mieli kogos po swojej stronie ...."

Major Hibbert zmarl w wieku 96 lat w okolicy Truro w Kornwalii.  Memorial Mass jest planowana w Londynie, oczywiscie zawiadomimy czytelnikow jak tylko rodzina podejmie ta decyzje.
