It is with great sadness that the FOBLC has learnt of the sudden death of David Platt.
Recently elected as our Treasurer, David was an active member of the FOBLC with a particular interest in researching the stories behind some of the war dead buried in our cemeteries. David had been currently involved in assisting in the preparations for the 'Up The Line' performance that will be taking place on 11th November in the cemeteries to commemorate the dead from World War I.
The FOBLC wishes to pass on our condolences to his family. David will be sorely missed.
