It is with sadness that the Committee reports the death of Bob Bairamian, who died last Friday at the age of 83. Bob had been a member of the Stragglers of Asia since 1956 and served for many years on the Committee. He was also an Honorary Vice President of the Club. More recent members of the Club will also remember Bob from their trips down to the Nevill where during the Bluemantle’s cricket week Bob was often in attendance as a lifelong member of both clubs.

A short obituary for Bob can be found on the Bluemantles website at A service of thanksgiving will be held on Friday, 28 September 2018 at 2pm in the church of St. John the Baptist, Penshurst.
