Scottish Fencing are sorry to announce the loss of another hard working volunteer. Dr David Mends first joined SAFU as secretary in 1981. Checking through some issues of the Point he was still involved in the administration of the sport in 1996!
As well as supporting the various committees of SAFU Dr Mends was a successful competitive fencer. He was Scottish Foil Champion in 1951 and 1952. In the following year, 1953, he went on to win the Scottish Men’s Epee trophy.
