Charles Gault – Obituary

Charles Gault or ‘Charlie’ as he was know to generations of Instonians and  fencers was a substantial figure in the fencing world. President of the Northern Ireland Fencing Union for over thirty years and master i/c fencing at RBAI from 1965 he was an enthusiastic and committed fencing administrator serving on committees of Public Schools Fencing and representing us on the Northern Ireland Commonwealth Games Council through the long years of the sport’s exclusion from the main Games. His greatest pleasure was to register the success of Inst fencers and he was responsible for the school being at the very top of UK Schools’ Fencing for the whole of his involvement, even after retiring from the school staff. He was an active supporter and ambassador helping dozens of individuals in their enjoyment of fencing. The anecdotes are legion, the memories copious. He is a loss not just to his family but to all those who knew him.
