Poignant Ceremony

There were heartfelt emotions at St George's last week when the ashes of a Royal Artillery soldier were scattered by his close family.

The soldier was RA , trained at Woolwich where he met his wife, and then went to the 4 Light Regiment which disbanded in 71/72; after that he went to 27 Medium, who later became 27 Field Regiment.

Our condolences - and thanks for their dignity and positivity - to the family.
