Per Ardua ad Astra

Born in Glasgow in 1936, the middle of three boys, Freddie excelled in school and on the rugby field. As a young RAF officer in Henlow, he met his bride, Virginia, to whom he was married for 58 happy years. Their time together took them to over 20 different locations across the UK and abroad, including tours as a base commander at Cosford, missile testing in Australia, and as an attaché at our embassies in Paris and Algiers.

After retiring from the RAF at age 55, he forged a second career with the Defence Ministry in Farnborough as a ballistic missile expert, something he continued to follow in depth thanks to avidly read subscriptions to Flight International and Aviation Week magazines. He remained a proud member of the RAF Club in London and was a Fellow of the Institute of Engineering and Technology.

In later years, Freddie loved his weekly rounds of golf, his music, and the many trips he and Virginia took around Europe and the US. He is survived by Virginia, and by his daughter Sue, son Nigel and their families.
