It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Jon Milner. Jon passed away on Sunday morning, surrounded by his family at the age of 64.

I am sure all that came into contact with Jon will appreciate his massive contribution to fencing on so many fronts, but particularly as a competition organiser and over a prolonged period of time.

My condolences to Janet his wife and to Tom and Sarah his children.

A fuller obituary will appear asap on the BFA website.
