War Veterans Funeral - Help needed!

Recommended Posts

Posting this a friend of the family -

I was hoping any Armed Forces Personnel current or ex who would like to attend a veterans funeral which is taking place on Wednesday 26 February at 10:30. at Hutclifffe Wood Crematorium, Sheffield.

 

Joe was a 92 year old Burma Star medal holder.

 

He has family and friends but it would be fantastic to get some uniform to attend it would mean alot to the family.

 

please call 07450453702 if you need more details.

Contact The Sheffield Star, i am sure they would like to promote it. Facebook campaigns seem to work well too.

I hope you get lots of response.

Yes definitely contact the British Legion . When my beloved Dad died , Mum contacted them & they came to his funeral , he had the flag draped over his coffin . They then sang aswell . It was lovely
