Several of Richard’s friends live abroad and will not be able to return for the funeral. One of these is John Birt (S 59-63), who emailed Richard Sayer (S 56-61) to say,
"Richard (V-G) and our mutual friend Gubbo (Barry Gubbins) go back to 1964 when they were both on their way into Sandhurst via the “thickies” entrance … as did I, but one class ahead of them!!
After Sandhurst we met up again in HK in ‘74 when we were both soldiers and played in the same hockey team in the HK league. From then on we kept in touch and played the odd game of golf when I was in the UK. I shall miss him".
