Members of the Branch Remember Lost Serving Colleagues and RAFA Branch Members
It is with deepest sorrow that we had to announce the death of Gordon Overton. Gordon was, for many years, our social secretary along with the late Jean Williams. The two would arrange arrange quiz nights, our branch evenings and outings to various places. Coincidently, it was Gordon and Jean who organised the first branch visit to Cosford Military Museum. After standing-down  from  the  committee,  Gordon  continued  to  be  a  regular visitor to branch meetings until ill health took over. He moved into a local care  home,  were  he  was  visited  by  members.  A  regular  visitor  was  our RAFALO, Shaun  Griffin,  who  brought  Gordon  along  to  our  day  out  at Shuttleworth. Although wheelchair bound at the time, I know that Gordon enjoyed himself, being with his friends of RAFA again.
