Last Post
A chance to pause for a minute in quiet contemplation for our friends and colleagues who have passed away:
Mr Cyril Gray  - Cyril was our champion Wings Appeal collector, and for this he was awarded the John Stoddard Trophy this year for his work in this field. He was a regular at our monthly meetings, and it was odd not to see him at meetings over the last couple of months.
