It is with sadness that we record that W. Bro/Comp. Lt. Cmdr. Christopher J H Richards Crossed the Bar on 1st April 2016.

Chris was Initiated into the Lodge on 29th January 1990 and became Worshipful Master in December 2001. He served as Almoner for many years and was Appointed to the Rank of P.Pr.G.St.B. in 2008. He was Promoted to the Rank of P.Pr.G.J.D. in 2014.

He was Exalted into White Ensign Chapter on 8th June 2006 and became Almoner in 2008. He was rewarded with an Appointment to P.Pr.A.G.D.C. in 2013.

He was a qualified Submariner, (Nuclear), and saw action in the Falklands War in 1982. He later transferred to the Careers Service and was the Area Recruiting Officer for the West Midlands. On leaving the Royal Navy he became an HR Manager with British Rail.

Our sincere condolences go to his widow Gayle and his two daughters.

A Service of Thanksgiving for his life with full Military Honours takes place at The Church of the Holy Trinity, Church Street, Eckington on Wednesday 20th April.
