Obituaries Page 2
Traditionally, the Association has marked the passing of Old Secundrians by remembering them at the annual dinner. The Association's Committee decided in 2011 that a more fitting and permanent tribute would be to record their passing on the annual dinner menu card and then to invite friends to lodge obituaries on the website. Accordingly, this page (2/2) is given over to recording those tributes. More Obituaries are recorded on Page 1.
See also the Rolls of Honour pages for those who gave their lives in both World Wars; these include pages specifically given over to obituaries of all those who died in the Great War. (see Rolls of Honour).
Former colleagues and friends who would like to record a tribute should send it (preferably in Word format) to Peter Higgins (see Contacts).
