Obituary – The Reverend John Cowling

John, who sadly died on Christmas day, was the Rector of our Chaplaincy Church, St Olave’s in Hart Street, London from 1991 to 2005.  And, as such was our Honorary Chaplain for the whole of that period, being a great supporter of the Company, attending many of our functions, and, especially allowing us to hold our Installation Court in the Church, which included the blessing of the Company’s badges of office. He retired from St Olave’s in 2005 and settled in Romney Marsh, Kent, later moving to Exetr to be near family. Read more…
