MICHAEL HERSCHELL 1958-2019
It is with great sadness that we mourn the passing of our friend Michael Herschell.
A former firefighter, Michael was a very fine longbow archer and had also been a valued member of the committee, during his 11 years with the club. Not only was he a worthy and successful competitor here but he also competed abroad. In addition, he was one of a very small group of the club's archers to have achieved a longbow Three Gold End (80 yards).
Michael was a giant of a man with a wicked and crazy sense of humour. No one that knew him will forget how he made us cry with laughter. An abiding memory for many of us will be when he transformed himself into HM The Queen for the Jubilee Shoot. What a joker! And there was always much hilarity and banter on Sundays when he was around.
Michael was a great man and it was a privilege to have known him and shot with him.
Rest in peace Michael. We miss you.
PHILIP BLACKIE 1942-2017
Philip joined our club in September of 2009 when Beckenham Bowmen folded. He and another of their members brought a load of the old club’s archery equipment which was very welcome.
Philip was a familiar sight on the the shooting line, except when he was on one of his many jaunts to Australia! He was often dressed in tweed and always looked smart. Softly spoken and a quiet figure in the club, he will be missed.
Philip’s memorial service was held at Honor Oak Crematorium on 3 October 2017.
Rest in peace Philip.
