Ken will be sadly missed by many (who admired and respected him), but none more than Liz and their boys to whom our deepest sympathy goes.Thanks to Doug Swanson (April 2014) After matriculating Donald joined the Post Office in Wimborne, Dorset & when war broke out he joined the Army while his two brothers served their country in the RAF.They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. We will remember them Extract from ‘For the Fallen’ (1914) by Laurence Binyon (1869-1943) Ken Barker was one of a line of distinguished Post Office Directors to command the Postal and Courier Services TA.However, his tour was far from the norm as he headed the Group in both the Royal Engineers and the Royal Logistic Corps.At the time Ken was Director and General Manager Royal Mail South Wales and South West.
What a glorious & memorable character, who we all remember with deep affection.
So the change of Corps and size were not exactly popular with anyone in the Group.
The fact that we became a recognised strength at Grantham was due entirely to Ken’s supportive leadership, his planning, inspiration, professionalism, determination and his tact and diplomacy.
He retired to Highcliffe with his wife Doris of more than 50 years where they enjoyed many happy times together. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with his Army friends & would look forward to his ccouple of weeks each year back in uniform.
Of course it could have been the camaraderie in the mess away from home that had most appeal – Mike Bartlett (Don’s son) Don was ever the best of company at any event and in any circumstance.
