Thu 10 Aug 2017 — The sad loss of WO1 Gordon Hyatt MBE ( Retd )

WO1 Gordon Hyatt MBE ( Retd ), succumbed to a long term illness at the end of July and his funeral is on Friday 18th Aug.

It is with great sadness but also superb pride that so many of us in the Ten Tors community remember Gordon. I know that many of us would have known and loved him, and we will have him and his family in our prayers at this time.

Here are a few of the many delightful comments that I’ve had about Gordon:

· “Gordon was a lovely lovely man and a delight to work with”.

· “He has been a wonderful supporter of Ten Tors and a diligent and active member of the Compliance Monitoring Team”.

· “Gordon epitomised all that is best in a soldier - Steadfast and true”.

Details for Friday are as follows:

12:15 hrs - Church service at St Edwards Church, Eggbuckland, Plymouth
13:15 hrs - A short service at Efford Crematorium for family and close friends
13:30 – 17:00 hrs - Royal British Legion club, Crownhill, Plymouth
