Global Response To Funeral Of Tamworth War Veteran

Just seen this on facebook and thought I would post it on here .

Do you live in Tamworth, Staffordshire? Can you help?

Ladies and gentlemen. We have another call for help from a nursing home in Tamworth.

"My name is Christopher Homer and I am the home manager of Marmion Nursing Home which is located in Tamworth, Staffordshire. I am writing to ask your advice as we have just lost a resident of ours aged 89 years. He has been in our home for 21 years and has passed having no family members or next of kin.

As a young man he served in the forces as a marine and was honoured with the veterans badge that he treasured very much and loved nothing more than listening to old time songs that took him back. As he has no family members his funeral will be attended by staff from the home only. I therefore ask if there is a way of contacting veterans in our area who may wish to pay their respects to a fellow serviceman.

If you can help and wish to contact me you can do so by calling 01827 67953. Thank you, Christopher Homer."

The RMA and RNA share the same premises in Tamworth, so there will be a good turn out if I know the blokes there.
Unfortunatly the last time I went in there I was told there were hardly any in the RMA. This may have changed over the last few months, I hope so.
Albert was known to me both as a medic and a bus driver as the Marmion home is on the bus route into town.
He knew I was ex RN with the appropriate or (inappropriate) remarks questioning my legitamacy.
RIP mate.
