Lt Cdr Kris Ward RN (Retd) RIP


War Hero
With great sadness I must report that PPRUNE is stating Kris Ward, former SHAR and Harrier GR7/9 pilot and son of Sharky, died last week at a tragically young age.

I have no details of the circumstances but the thread states that his funeral will be at Tynemouth Crematorium tomorrow, 27 Nov at 12:45. Therefore, although I only met him on a few occasions (and was present in the PJHQ reception when he famously challenged David Cameron over the withdrawal of the Harrier in SDSR10), I thought it prudent to highlight his untimely passing to the FAA community in case any of you wished to attend the funeral.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Ward family.
