Following the recent sad news of the death of Shirley Roach, Wife of Clive.
I am able to inform you of the Funeral arrangements.

The Funeral will take place on September 11th at 1 pm at Woodlands Crematorium.
You are invited afterwards to The Onward Club, Helmswood Drive.

Shirley was a lovely lady and i know many of you will wish to pay your last respects.
Our deepest condolences go to Clive and all the family.


The next meeting and social will be held on Thursday August 30th.at the Onward Club.


The Freedom parade in London on 5th September.
The parade starts at The Tower of London and continues to Guildhall for a small reception.
A distance of 1 1/2 miles. Sheldon branch members attending are :
Col Bob Carruthers O.B.E TD, Capt John Davis, Harry Morton, Major Ralph Wooldridge TD,
Neil Gregory, Alan Oakley, Chris Mahon, Adrian Evans.
Very disappointed with numbers for this Freedom parade.
Any members interested in going, the National express coach from Digbeth is at 04.45 am
and arrives in London at 07.50 am. Cost is £12.50 each.
If you do want to go you must inform me straight away so that i can inform the Tower.

The Church parade in Warwick on 14th October.
Standard bearers must be at St John’s House at 10.30 am on the Saturday 13th October for rehearsal, to make sure there are no
c.... ups this year, as we have the 1st Battalion on parade we need to get it right on the Sunday
with standards going into Church this year.

Best regards as always
Neil
