Ron MartinIt is with great sadness that we have to report the death of Kent Auxilier Ron Martin.

Ron served with Haricot patrol which covered the Hastingleigh, Wye and Bodsham areas in Kent.

The patrol was set up by Peter Fleming and their Operational Base was situated in an Ice House.

Ron was instrumental in helping Phil Evans (below), our Kent CIO with his research as well as being a great friend to him.

Ron leaves a wife and will be greatly missed by Phil and his family.

  One Response to “Remembering Ron”

  1. Sad to hear the news. I first met Ron when I moved to Hastingleigh in 2000. I was carrying out research into the Kent Auxiliary Units at the time. He took me down to Evington Hall and showed me the cellars and the now-destroyed ice house on the ridge opposite. I remember him jumping over a barbed wire fence. He must have been in his mid-80s! A full life. Sadly missed.
