Dr David Mends - obituary

Scottish Fencing are sorry to announce the loss of another hard working volunteer. Dr David Mends first joined SAFU as secretary in 1981. Checking through some issues of the Point he was still involved in the administration of the sport in 1996!  

As well as supporting the various committees of SAFU Dr Mends was a successful competitive fencer. He was Scottish Foil Champion in 1951 and 1952. In the following year, 1953, he went on to win the Scottish Men’s Epee trophy.

For anyone wishing to attend Dr Mends' funeral service this will take place at 3.30pm on Thursday the 16 March 2017 at The Cloister Chapel in Warriston Crematorium, Edinburgh. 

Scottish Fencing sends condolences to David's sister Jocelyn and her family.
