We are very sad to hear about the passing of General Sir John Wilsey, aged 80. He had exceptional qualities which took him to within reach of the highest appointment in the Army.
Retiring from the Army as CinC in 1996, he had a long connection with the AWSA. He was Chairman 1989 – 92; President 1992 – 97 and then a Vice President until 2004. He played a large part behind the scenes and on the finances of AWSA 50 in St Moritz 1997.
