David Mort

We have learned with regret that David Mort, former fencer, and WF Honorary Life Member has passed away.  He had been unwell in recent months.    Older members may remember David as one of the founder members of the old ‘Excalibur’ club from the ‘60s, along with other notables such as Mike Lee & Fred Suller.   As WAFU Chairman 1970-80, David and his wife Yvonne were the instigators of the Welsh Open in 1971, or possibly earlier, and in recognition of his efforts, he was made an Honorary Member of WAFU in May 1999, and its Life President.

He will be sadly missed.
