Picked up from FB - Lonely departure of a Royal!

Discussion in 'The Corps' started by Waspie, Apr 17, 2013.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Copied from FB, a request for help!

    Ladies and gents, it saddens me to report the passing of another Royal from our great family and urge you to please pass on the following so we can again give our brother a send off fittinng for any Royal.

    Recently the Corps Family has mobilised magnificently on two occasions when former Royal Marines have crossed the bar with no one to mourn their passing. It is my sad duty to inform you that this has again occurred with the death of Major John Mitchell RM. He has made the journey to the Final RV but has no one to celebrate his life on the mortal side of the fence.

    I ask you once again to rally to the call and if you are able and in the area please make the time to pay your respects to a brother in arms.

    The details of the funeral are as follows.

    Date:1600 Hrs 24th April 2013

    Location: The Surrey and Sussex Crematorium, Balcombe Road, Crawley, West Sussex, RH10 3NQ

    PLEASE, PLEASE share this and let everyone know so we can again make our corps and it's family proud.

    Dave Lilburn.
