Lachlan May

Sorry to have to advise you all that Lachlan passed away on Tuesday morning 2nd November 2021 at the age of 71.

Lachlan reporting at the Annual reunion in 2009

Lachlan was a dedicated 214 man, having served as an officer in both the Lifeboys (Junior Section) and as Captain in the Company from 1979-1984.

Lachlan (2nd left back row) and all the 214 BB Lifeboy Staff in 1968 at Chrissie Rowan’s retirement.

He served on the Ex-Members Association on the Committee, also as Secretary & Chairman.

Lachlan advised me recently, he had completed 57 years in 214 service as man and boy.

I personally have a lot of great memories of Lachlan, having been in the Lifeboys/Junior section and also served as an Officer during his Captaincy.

He recently recalled all his 214 history to me, which I will publish on the website when the time is right.

Details of his funeral will be posted once known.

(Family will be coming up from down South, so finding accommodation may be problematic while COP26 is going on in Glasgow.)

Meanwhile, we all send our condolences to his wife Anne, their children Kenneth, Kirsty, Donald and all the family.
