Diane Austin 1933-2018

Diane Austin, veteran fencer and dedicated SE Region administrator, died last weekend.  For those who knew her, funeral details are available on request. 

Diane was a member of Surrey’s successful Excalibur team.  A historic photo is included in a newsletter linked here (p17).

For many years, Diane was SE Region secretary.  Agendas were always prepared and minutes diligently published.

Here’s a link to a picture of Diane refereeing youth fencers in the past. 

In 2008, Diane was awarded a medal in recognition of her service to British Fencing.

Diane was active in veterans fencing.   On one of many successful trips she took silver in the over 70’s category at the Toronto Commonwealth Games.

RIP Diane.
