His second book, “My Orford”, was never completed before his death on 7th October 1997, but still provides an interesting insight into village life in Orford and his personal experiences during his lifetime.
He was awarded the M.B.E. in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List of 1993 for over 28 years service to Trinity House and collected his award from H.R.H. Prince Charles at an investiture at Buckingham Palace on Thursday 9th December the same year.
He retired as attendant of Orfordness Lighthouse on Friday 1st October 1994.
I am the youngest of his six sons and I feel that publishing his second book on the Internet is a fitting tribute to the man I am proud to call Dad. To me and my five brothers he was, and will always be, our guiding light.
