It is with considerable sadness and regret that I have to announce the death of Bill Simpson a keen dinghy sailor and Commodore in 1972.

Bill last sailed, at the age of 84, in July 2002.

He was a distinguished soldier and won the Military Cross for conspicuous gallantry as an infantry officer in World War II.

Our condolences to his family. He will be sadly missed by everyone who knew and sailed with, and against, him.

If anyone wants details of the funeral arrangements please either telephone me on 020-8390-9534 or email:

Beverley Lawrence Beech, Commodore
18th January, 2003
