Obituary - Mike Rollinson

We recently heard the sad news that Mike Rollinson passed away on the 30 January 2016. Mike started fencing at a young age and pursued it through his physics studies at Edinburgh University. He ended up with a varied career in IT and weather forecasting systems that enabled a fair amount of travel. After many years out of fencing due to work, Mike took fencing up again in his early forties to get fit but the competitive bug bit again and he would travel with other club members to Open competitions in Scotland and England.
