It is with great regret that I inform you of the death on Wednesday 11th October 2017 of Lieutenant General Sir Richard Swinburn KCB. General Sir Richard was born on 30th October 1937. He was commissioned on 2nd August 1957 at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst into the 17th/21st Lancers. In 1979 he was appointed Commanding Officer of his regiment and in 1996 he was appointed Colonel of The Queen’s Royal Lancers. On the formation of The Royal Lancers (Queen Elizabeths’ Own) he was appointed to the Council.
There will be a private family funeral and in the coming months there will be a memorial service at the Royal Garrison Church, Aldershot; the details of which will be communicated later.
