Austin Ratcliffe

Hello Fellow Miltonians

Sadly, I came across the news today that Austin Ratcliffe passed away last night (24/5 February 2017). Many of our friends will remember him from our Milton Days of1958-1963. He spent much of his working life with Rhodesia Railways, was an Admins Member of the 'Staff and Family of Rhodesia Railways' Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/groups/rhodesiarailwayemployees/members/) and was living in Dorchester, Dorset. He is deeply mourned by his family and many friends.

Kind regards
Ron Exelby
