Sir Philip Watson

From Keith Chittenden, 26th February 2010

Very many thanks for such an excellent issue.

Despite having re-located to Gloucestershire, I still hope one of these days to make the annual reunion.

In the meantime however, may I express my sincere thanks for coverage of the death in December of Sir Philip Watson who was my non-executive Chairman when I ran Marconi Radar in the early 1980s.

Those of us who had the privilege to attend his very moving service of Memory and Thanksgiving in Oxfordshire on the 20th February felt the reading of Chaucer’s description of the Perfect Gentle Knight was the perfect description of the qualities of such a wonderful man!
