Derek Hall

Wing Cmdr. Dr Derek Hall RAF
1951 - 2013
Posted 22/05/2013

It is with great sadness that we have to advise you all of the sudden death of Wing Cmdr. Dr Derek Hall RAF.

Derek was a trustee of the NGVFA for the last 8 years and was one of our medical advisers. Derek was a cheerful guy despite his serious health conditions; as many of you know he did not deploy to the Gulf War 91 Op Granby but was vaccinated. He was prepared to take on any fight and his wit, charm and most certainly his knowledge will be sadly missed by us all.

Our thoughts go out to his family and this very sad time.

His funeral will be held on the 4th of June at St Hilda's Church, Hartlepool

Rest in peace.

Terry Bird
Posted 04/04/2013

Many of you know Diane who works in the office and sadly her husband Terry passed away suddenly on 1st April 2013. Some of our members may have also met Terry as he helped out at events and even worked in the office for us on many occasions. He was a gentleman and a lovely kind helpful man and will be sadly missed by us all.

Terry's funeral is on Monday 15th April and the office will be closed for the day as we will be attending the funeral to pay our respects and support our Diane.

We know you will join us in sending your thoughts and condolences to Diane and her family at this very tragic loss of her husband Terry.

Rest in peace.
