Peter Stringer Esq.Funeral 03 Sept 2020His grandson Ryan Stringer whom I first met in 2000 (now a fine looking gentleman) read our BCS school prayer which his Grandad ( Peter) would’ve liked. Ryan also wore Peter Sahib’s OCA UK Tie (that he designed whilst I was in the UK), BCS tie bar and cufflinks (pic attached).Peter was cremated wearing his BCS Blazer, OCA UK tie and BCS tie bar.The family expressed immense gratitude to see the SchoolFlag at half mast, a lovely touch and well received by all members. Explicitly Thanking Director Simon Weale för this gesture that coincided with the nation mourning the passing of President Pranab Mukerjee.Warmest Wishes and Kindest RegardsVivek BhasinLefroy House1961-1970
