    Viscount Slim – Memorial Service

    Published 21st March

    Past Chairman and Vice President of the Britain-Australia Society, John Slim sadly passed away on January 12th, only a few months after his beloved wife Buffy.

    John was truly a great friend and supporter of the Society for many years, including helping us to gain access to Parliament for events and supporting the educational scholarships that the Society administers. He lent his time and expertise to a number of causes, including military charities and the Gurkhas and was a valuable contributor to debates and committees on military and pensions topics in the House of Lords and kept doing so into his 90th year.

    A Service of Thanksgiving for the life and work of Colonel The Viscount Slim OBE will be held at

    noon on Thursday 16 May 2019
