A former Buckinghamshire Deputy Lieutenant has sadly passed away

Sir Philip Duncombe died peacefully on 22nd December 2011.

Sir Philip was commissioned as a Deputy Lieutenant in May 1971 and transferred to the Supplementary List in January 2003. He had a distinguished military background and was a former member of The Queen’s Bodyguard. In his later years he devoted great support to Bletchley Park.

A Memorial Service for Sir Philip Duncombe will be held at 2pm on Friday, January 13. A private family burial will take place earlier in the day. The service will be held at St Mary-The-Virgin Church, Great Brickhill. The following link provides a link showing the location of the church on a map.

Lady Duncombe anticipates that the church will be full and has made arrangements for a marquee to be erected outside the church which will allow those who arrive late to listen to the service.
