Basil White

Basil White
Basil was the architect of the New Forest Airfields Memorial at Holmsley South. He was a very talented man who produced stunning artistic creations, particularly of things aviation and maritime. His model making was legendary and he helped FONFA by producing scale models of the memorial, for which he negotiated planning permission with the New Forest District Council. Without his determination, we could still be awaiting approval. Basil joined FONFA as a trustee although his support extended back to the very beginning of the entire project. Basil was always cheerful and full of good humour, always able to take a joke against himself.

On the day of his funeral the packed church was a fitting tribute to this good man. Many members of the congregation walked behind the hearse to his final resting place in the little village cemetery at Sopley. He is sadly missed by all who knew him and especially by his colleagues within this charity. The Memorial at Holmsley is a lasting tribute to this wonderful person.
