  2. It would be nice to see one of the Commando units offer a military funeral.
  3. Be nice if someone could find out about his service in the RM, before Thursday, and say something about it at the service
  4. There's a few on the ROMFT site going.
  5. Hope he gets a good send off and if there is a turn out I wouldnt be surprised if it made the press again, maybe some details of his life and times too
  6. :( i would have gone for a cuppa and some cake while he was still with us, seems a shame that only in parting is it acknowledged he was lonely! Im going to try and make it down, i know this has been circulating a lot in pompey and some serving are aware

  11. Having just read pompey news online this morning, it looks like Jimmy is going to get a good turn out, with serving and ex serving members attending R.I.P Jimmy

    The smoke is irritating my eyes here also.
  15. It's nice to see that the extended family came through BZ
  16. Good to see, however there are RMA branches across the country, including a National branch. there is no reason to be a "lonely ex-Bootie" (even a former one) unless you wish to be. RMA members will turn out for all members funerals, booted, suited and normally with a few words about the departed.

    That said it all ended well. BZ to all who turned out.
  17. Excellent. BZ to all. RIP in peace Jimmy.
  18. RIP Royal and am so proud of the folk who attended to say farewell to a fellow serviceman.
