 April  2009   




    Sadly we have some obituaries to report in this letter.

         First I must apologise for an omission in the last letter. Laurie Reed passed away on August 17th. He died peacefully after a short illness with his family around him. The flag was sent for his coffin which also bore 2 berets and Laurie’s medals. Several former 10th Hussars attended. We had a very nice letter from his son with the return of the flag saying his family very much appreciated the attendance of Laurie’s former friends.
