In Memoriam: Neil Bright 1958 - 2023

Last week, I received the sad news that Neil Bright had passed away following a short illness. Neil was one of the co-founders of Blitzwalkers in 2010 and although he and I had gone our separate ways in recent years, the news of his passing came as something of a shock. In recent times, Neil had stepped away from guiding walks in favour of writing but most recently had been a volunteer guide for the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and could be found most Saturday mornings at the Merchant Navy Memorial at Tower Hill.

My condolences go to Neil's widow Tracey, as well as to his family and friends at this sad time.
