Philip was an early member of the 7mm NGA and a founder of the Surrey Area Group. He was both Editor and Treasurer of the Association proper, as well as Editor, Treasurer and every other hat for the Group over the years.
Having retired on at least two occasions from the Rat Race, he was a pillar of his local church and President of his local Scout District.
However, above all of that, he was an incredibly kind and understanding man, with a way of quickly seeing to the heart of a problem and always having an encouraging word and a smile for those in need.
Rest In Peace, Philip. You will be sorely missed.
