Captain Eric M brown

You will have seen the reports that Royal High former pupil Captain Eric Brown has passed away at the grand age of 97 after a short illness. Eric attended our RHS London Club dinners in 2011 and 2012, as guest speaker, together with his partner Jean and he made a big impression on those audiences with his inspirational speeches. One of our members, Gordon Burt, has provided links to some of Eric’s obituaries taken from publications at home and abroad
