Norman Harold Chase, Langleybury Cricket Club’s President since 1998 died on 4th July 2015 aged 94 years.
He played rugby for Watford Grammar School for Boys before the Second World War and then during it trained as a light aircraft pilot and attained the rank of Major.
Eventually he fought in Italy at Anzio and was awarded a Distinguished Flying Cross citation which says that “he has the greatest efficiency and cool courage” On three occasions he flew over enemy lines subject to heavy fire from the ground and the citation further states that “he showed continued courage over a long period and a very great devotion to duty” Bizarrely it is believed that he was eventually shot down accidentally by his own forces!
He married in 1943 and after the war became a qualified accountant and worked as a Company Secretary for a number of companies.
He became involved in Langleybury Cricket Club in the 1970’s and was a Vice President before becoming President of the club in 1998. Although not an actual cricketer as such, he was a great and generous supporter and patron of the club, which resulted in the pavilion being named after him.
He was very proud when the club played at Lords in 1996 in the final of The Village Cup and often bought jugs of beer for Langleybury teams, hardly missing a weekend during the summer.
Due to ill health he was unable to visit the club much recently but did visit twice this current season from the Care Home where he was staying.
His funeral will be at Garston Crematorium on the 14th July at 1.20 pm and afterwards at Langleybury Cricket Club.
