Anthony Smith’s Memorial Service

On Thursday 18th June at 11.30 am St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street, London, EC4Y 8AU over 300 people attended the Memorial service for a remarkable man in the history of ballooning, exploration,  raft expeditions and journalism.

Anthony’s son Adam looked forward to welcoming all who remembered his Father, and he was amazed at how many hundreds of people involved with ballooning were present.

Robin Batchelor, balloonist, adventurer and a close friend of Anthony’s did a reading, as did David Attenborough who had worked with Anthony over the years.
