Honor Flint: 1923 - 2015

We are sad to report the passing of Honor Flint.

Honor was one of the leading players in women's bridge in the 1960s and 1970s. She represented Great Britain in the European Championships on three occasions, winning a bronze medal in 1973, and was twice a winner of the Lady Milne Trophy with England.

Among Honor's other achievements, she won the Spring Foursomes four times, the Whitelaw Cup - the English Womens' Teams Championship - three times, the Two Star Pairs, and Pachabo Cup.

Some of her victories came under the name of Honor Rye - she later married Jeremy Flint, himself a leading international player, and with whom she achieved some of her victories.
