It is with sadness that I report the passing of Frederick Charles William Maurer who died on 3 Jul 16 aged 80. He had served with the Army Air Corps at Middle Wallop as an Aircraft Technician during his National Service between 1959 and 1962. He then went on to have a career in aviation with Handley Page, Hawker Siddley and then British Aerospace in Hatfield. Our thoughts are with his widow, Margaret and his family. Margaret has asked for his ashes to be scattered at Middle Wallop. Arrangements are in hand for that to be done in the grounds of the Museum of Army Flying.
