Neville Duke

The funeral of Neville Duke took place at Tangmere church on May 1st and a reception was held at the Museum afterwards. Among over 100 guests attending were the Duke of Richmond and Gordon, former Hawker Test Pilots David Lockspeiser and Duncan Simpson, Air Marshal Sir Freddie Sowerby, former boss of British Aerospace, Admiral Sir Raymond Lygo and world airspeed record holder Peter Twiss.

In a moving final tribute to Neville a lone Hawker Hunter flew two passes in salute, pulling up high into the blue sky as a final farewell on its second pass.

BBC TV featured the event in all its South Today news bulletins that day, broadcasting live from the Museum for its main early evening programme.

Farewell Neville, and thanks for all you did for the Museum.
