The Surrey Branch has some very sad news to report: our branch chairman, Andy Thompson, died suddenly and unexpectedly while taking part in an organised walk along the Thames on Saturday 8th May. The branch committee will circulate more information to Surrey branch members when it becomes available. We ask that people do not contact his family at this point. If you have any questions please contact Andy Day, the branch programme secretary on 07972 287 315 or Peter Emery the branch treasurer on 07785 383 739.

The pictures below show Andy doing what he loved - explaining the Great War, at the places where it happened, during one of the many tours of the battlefields that he organised for the WFA Surrey Branch.  We will miss his friendship, his knowledge, his enthusiasm and his company.   May he Rest In Peace.
