We have been informed by Stuart Cambridge Jim’s funeral arrangements have been finalised. It is to be held on Friday 30 June 1500 hrs at Taunton Crematorium TA1 5NE. The Wake will be held in the Wyvern Club TA1 3BJ from 1630hrs. Dress: Family have said, they don’t mind what people wear, as they will not necessarily be all in Black.
We are informed that sadly Martin Flanagan (Flan) passed away in his sleep from a suspected heart attack. Martin was the best man at my wedding and was a well-liked member of the army postie family. He not that long ago got married to Salina and was working in the oil industry in Angola but was living in Leeds. Courtesy of Alan Webb
Flan’s family have decided to hold a private family funeral which, of course, we must both understand and respect. Flan’s last posting was with 10 PC Sqn in Hannover and we will be raising a glass or three to his memory at the 1 PC reunion on the weekend of 29th June. We appreciate not everyone can make it across to Hannover, so it’s our intention to hold a belated wake to celebrate his life and to give him a send-off to be proud of. We are looking at meeting up in Leeds sometime in July or August and would kindly request those who’d be interested please PM either Alan Webb or Ginge Bennett.
