It is with great sadness that we report the death of John Kenneth Harrison, a founder member of the Northampton Branch in 1948 and President of same in recent years.
The funeral took place on 23rd September at St. Francis Church, Duston, and was attended by over a hundred mourners, including fellow Society members.
John was part of the original team which formed the Branch and was its Chairman for over 40 years, providing the excellent qualities of guidance, leadership and personality. He was in the forefront of promoting the expansion of the Branch through regular coach trips and fortnightly meetings and then the first to promote afternoon meetings.
A prolific photographer, who travelled widely in both the UK and Europe, and also visited India, his presence at both Branch and Society functions will be missed.
