A premature death

Brian Craven ('58 - '65) died suddenly while on Holiday in Seville on 24 September 2017.

Brian was an enthusistic member of the Severn Valley Railway for many years. As a celebration of his life, Brian's family has chartered a special stream train from Kidderminster to Bridgenorth on Saturday 18 November.

If anyone who knew Brian would like to join the train and to exchange memories then please contact Brian's daughter, janet, on janwhitehouse1975@outlook.com

Very sad news, Mike. I have fond memories of him at school. Didn’t he have a late arrival dispensation as he lived a great distance away from KGBS?

Re: A premature death

I think you're right Allan (about the dispensation).
Brian was one of the best.
