A Sad Day

The funeral took place in Peterborough on 5th October 2016 of one of the Branch Associations longest serving members. Major Bob Rowland died in September but he will be very fondly remembered by all present and past members of the branch.  Forty three years ago, Ron had been one of the founder members of the Peterborough Association and was a regular member until recently when illness prevented him from attending meetings and social gatherings. The funeral was marked by the Association Standard carried by our Standard Bearer Michael Court while the guard of Honour was provided by the current President John Hill, the past President Bill White and Wally Moss. A further past President Ken Smith also attended the ceremony. Reference was made throughout the eulogy and indeed shown on the Order of Service of Bob’s great love for the Corps. God rest Bob. We will remember you

ARTHUR HORN

The funeral took place in Boston Lincolnshire of Arthur Horn. Arthur was possibly the last Signalman to leave the beaches of Dunkirk during the evacuation. He died aged 98. The Peterborough Branch standard was carried at the funeral by the branch Standard Bearer Michael Court
