RIP Frank Grove

Frank H Grove RIPA very moving ceremony took place on Wednesday 26th March to mark the death of our Honorary Vice President Frank Grove, who had died aged 94.

Frank was with the 57th (East Surrey) Anti-tank Regiment (TA) and served with the BEF (British Expeditionary Force) in France in 1940, in the 44th (Home Counties) Division and was rescued from Dunkirk, although not necessarily by Endeavour.

"We didn't stop to look at the boat's name!" he said. After this Frank went on to fight in Burma, and is one of that generation who defended our country so we might enjoy our lives in relative peace - thank you Frank.
