It is with great sadness that Ham and Petersham Rifle & Pistol Club announce the death of Fred Haskett in his 92nd year after a short stay in hospital. Our longest standing member, Fred joined the Club in 1955 after National Service and was a very keen member shooting in various rifle leagues, including S & K (or grunting and groaning as he called it) and Club competitions until only a few years ago when he moved into a retirement home. Over the years he served on the Committee and at one time was the Club’s local scorer for the Polar Bear League. He still visited the Club from time to time for a chat with fellow members and always took a great interest in what was going on.
Fred was a lovely chap and friend. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. His funeral will be at Breakspeare Crematorium, Ruislip on August 9th at 2:30pm.
