Reginald John Giffen, 18th November 1919 – 1st April 2012

John attended St Albans School in Hertfordshire and on leaving became a prominent member of the Old Boys Association later joining a Founding Member of the Federation, the Old Albanian Lodge No 4999.

He was a very active member of the Federation, being Festival Secretary at the Annual Festival held at St Albans School in 1981 and in the same year being appointed one of the Joint Federation Secretaries, a position that he held until 1992. He served as Chairman of the Federation from 1992 to 1994 and was elected as a Vice President in 1996.

A humble, modest and kindly man, very reliable, and above all a great team player, he will be sadly missed by us all and our deepest sympathies are with his wife Mary and his family.
