RON PETRIE - Guildford and Nine ElmsThe funeral will be held at 15h45 on Friday 17th May 2019 at the Isle of Wight Crematorium (Wooton Bridge). Any queries, please call 01983 882288.
Sadly yet again an old ‘steam’ friend has left us following a declining battle with his health. He is understood to have passed peacefully on Monday evening 29th April 2019.
Living at Walton on Thames his early railway footplate days started at Guildford shed in the mid-fifties that then progressed after he transferred to Nine Elms where he fired to such Enginemen as Alf Hurley in the ‘Pilot Gang’ and then with Fred Streeter in the ‘Top-Link’.
On behalf of the ‘Nine Elms Enginemen’s Reunion’ and the numerous friends and colleagues over the years we offer our sincere condolences to Ron’s wife Ann and their two daughters following their sudden loss.
They are in all our thoughts during this extremely difficult time – ‘God Bless’.
Tim Crowley & Jim Lester
