Sir Nicholas Winton 1909-2015

It is with great sadness that we announce that Sir Nicholas Winton has died aged 106.  Known to many as the “British Schindler”, Sir Nicholas organised the rescue of 669 children who were destined for Nazi concentration camps ahead of World War Two.

The fencing community will remember him fondly and part of his legacy is the regions tournament, The Winton Cup, which he devised with his brother Bobby.

Full obituary to follow.
