Default Reg Ford

I would just like to say to all mine and dads friends around the uk that he passed away this morning.

Some of you would have known him as the flying police when we were both active nationally in the 90's.

And more recently as Sir Reg within swefta.


One day LOL

It was always a great pleasure to share a yarn with Sir Reg, and I spent many happy hours, both on and off the course swapping tales of firearms, helicopters and other such shenanigans.

A very sad day and a great loss to us all.

So sorry Daz to hear this very sad news and I'm sure Reg will be sadly missed by all in SWEFTA and throughout other regions as well.

He always took the time to give me help and advice when I first starting in FT and I always looked forward to a chat when ever he was supporting "The Mendip Team" .... a truly nice gentleman.

Our condolences to you and all your family.
