    Very sad and shocked to learn of the death of an old and dear friend. We first got to know George and Maureen in 1991 and have been in touch ever since, visiting them then him in Constable Burton over the years
    We would like to get in touch with Philippa and Victoria. Can anyone reading this help us to do that?

      How lovely to see this reply today. I am so sorry that we were unable to get in touch with you in October. Unfortunately, my dad’s phone was locked after he died and we were unable to access all of his contacts. We remember that you were great friends of our parents starting with their posting in Belize and my dad very much enjoyed your continued friendship.
