We learned recently about the death of long-standing 550 member and Annual Reunion attendee Frank Bastin. 

Frank died on Tuesday 6th February 2018 after a short stay in hospital. He had been ill for a number of months but also had a fall on Christmas Eve.
Frank was one of a group of three 550 ground crew who travelled from Scotland, Kent and in Frank's case, Devon, to attend reunions. Frank's funeral will take place on Tuesday 27th February at 12 noon at the Ottery St Mary Parish Church. Members are invited to attend the funeral service.
