Deceased Sept 23rd/2010
For those that may have known him I sadly inform you of the death of
"Jan" Bulley. This wonderfully noted athlete, who would have
undoubtedly run for England if the war hadn't interrupted competition.
He lived in a house a minutes walk from the sea and regularly swam half
a mile or so as a daily exercise. Sadly, he had been diagnosed with
dementia some time ago and though he and his dear wife, Hilde, had bravely
fought the increasing demands of the condition for a couple of years
it all became too much for him. He was accorded a remarkable funeral
as he was a much loved and respected member of the local business community
and of the Catholic Church where he and his wife worshipped. In this
tiny little dot on the map of the world we managed to muster three ex.members
to honour him.
