We were sorry to learn about the recent passing of John Russell, who was a member of the Club at the end of the 1950s. He won the Wingfield Sculls under London colours in 1959, as well as the London Cup at the Met the same year. He went on to row at international level in the early 1960s after moving to other clubs. A fuller account of his career will follow soon.
His funeral is taking place at Aldershot Crematorium on Friday 22nd February at 12 noon.
