Barry Thompson, G4LKF / G8JJE, 5th March 2017

| April 7, 2017

It is with regret that I inform you of the peaceful passing of my father, Barrington George Crosby (Barry) Thompson, G4LKF / G8JJE, on the 5th March 2017, following 3 months of illness.

Barry served in the RAF 1947 – 1957, seeing service in the UK and in Hong Kong and later as an NCO Instructor at No 3 Radio School Compton Bassett.  After leaving the RAF, Barry was an Electronic Inspector with the MoD, then a Technical Officer with REME.  Later he was a Senior Test Technician with an electronics company until ill health forced his early retirement in 1987.  He also served as an NCO with 92nd Signals Regiment Royal Signals AER.  His amateur radio interests were mainly in the VHF / UHF field.
