John Latsis

John Latsis, Greek businessman, shipping and oil magnate and banker, was a generous donor to the Westminster Abbey Restoration Appeal. A small stained glass window, designed by Alfred Fisher, can be seen in the Lady Chapel. This includes his name "CAPTAIN JOHN LATSIS" with images of an anchor, waves, a pennant with his initials and a tanker. He was born in 1910 and became one of the richest men in the world and died in 2003.

I’ve worked here for over thirty years and have seen many of the major services - it’s strange to realise that you are in a small way part of history.
