A MESSAGE FROM THE COMMITTEE

FANCY EDITING THE NEWSLETTER?
Eric Roper is standing down from editing the Newsletter and the Committee is, therefore, looking for a new editor for the Newsletter.  If you are interested or want to talk to anyone about what might be involved please contact Eric on eric_roper@blueyonder.co.uk or to anyone on the Committee via the Contact Us page.

At our recent meeting the committee all agreed that the newsletter should not be uploaded to the web site and should be restricted to subscribed members only via email. We are hoping that we will be contacted by those who previously received the electronic edition by email or by viewing online and have left the association, and who might reconsider and re-join.  We are also hopeful that those who viewed the Newsletter on the web site, may contact us and might be persuaded to join.
It is only a with the support of subscribed members paying for the Newsletter and kindly making donations, that the association is able to survive.

CYRIL ASKEW
It is our sad duty to inform you of the passing of the late Cyril Askew. Mr Askew passed away peacefully on the 24 October at his care home in Southport at the great age of 101. He was one of the characters of the Branch and led a full life to the end. Mr Askew served with the King's Liverpool Regiment from 1939 - 1945.
His funeral is at Southport Crematoriam, Southport Road, Southport PR8 5JQ at 14.40 on Friday 9th November.

TOWNSEND BARRACKS GET TOGETHER - 13TH OCTOBER 2018
LANCASTRIAN VOLUNTEERS, 5/8 KINGS, KCR, 4 LANCS ETC
About 60 of those who had served at Townsend Ave gathered on Saturday afternoon 13th October, to share memories, beer and sandwiches.  It included Harry Boyce who has served from the fifties to members of today’s A Coy and many from the years in between.   There was a demonstration of today’s weaponry courtesy of A Coy. This event promises to be first of more such events.

Thanks to Maj Eddie McMahon and the Branch Commiittee, Major Andy Holsgrove and A Coy for making it happen.

FORENVILLE MILITARY CEMETERY CENTENERY EVENT

My Grandfather Herbert Covill was in the Kings Liverpool Regiment (48659) during WW1. He was in the 12th,4th and 13th battalions. He was KIA 08/10/1918 and is buried in the Forenville Military Cemetery near Cambrai in Northern France. There are 17 men of KLR 13th Battalion buried there, all KIA on that day. There are also approx 80 other soldiers buried there from several regiments plus 6 WW2 airmen. I am in the early stages of organising a centenary commemoration for those buried at Forenville on 8th October 2018 (most fell on that day). READ MORE >>
