Silent Key

Information Received

Silent Key Service – Doug Fisher

A Memorial Service is being held at Penmount Crematorium Truro

Many Thanks Ken G0FIC


Doug would be well known by our members who were around back in the 70’s and 80’s. He ran Bryants Van Hire at Lanner for many years and moved away from the County some years back. His call sign escapes me at present but I believe he was a G4.
