Arthur Savage G2SA - Silent Key
9-Aug-1890 - 2-Jul-1958, Age 67

Silent Key: H.A.Savage (G2SA)

With deepest regret we record the death. After a long illness borne with courage, of Arthur Savage (G2SA) of Burnham-on-Crouch, Essex, on July 2, 1958. G2SA was first licensed in 1929 and had been continuously active on the air since that date except for the war years. He was one of the society's staunchest members having joined the RSGB some 30 years ago and supported local activities, notably National Field Day, whenever his many official duties permitted. He was a member of the FOC and DXCC and his keenness in our great hobby was undiminished after nearly 30 years on the air.

During the First World War Arthur Savage volunteered as a youth and was awarded the Military Medal for bravery in the field on the Somme in March 1918.

The society was represented at the funeral by Messrs. T.A. St Johnston G6UT (vice-president), H.H. Lowe G2HPF (Regional Representative), J.C. Frogatt G3IWI, and Louis Varney G5RV. A wreath on behalf of the society and one on behalf of the members of Chelmsford Radio Society was placed at the grave side.

Mr Savage, who held the rank of Captain in the Home Guard and was a life member of the British Legion, was buried with military honours.

We extend our deepest sympathy to his widow in her great loss. R.L.V. [Louis Varney]
