Major Ronnie Dallas (GBR) passed away 

Major Ronnie Dallas (GBR) who competed for Great Britain in two World Jumping Championships died early April aged 81.

Major Dallas, as member of the British Army of the Rhine, took part in the two World Championships with a final with exchange of horse, in a period when the British Show Jumping Association did not look favourably at this new kind of Championships. Riding Marmion, major Dallas placed 5th in 1954 in Madrid, thus narrowly missing the Final and finished 4th in 1955 in Aachen.

For many years, Major Dallas was the Duke of Beaufort hunt Secretary and the voice of Badminton's trot-ups.
