Rest in Peace
RIP 2008 – Info has reached me that Pte FRANK THOMAS. known as THOMAS 49 whilst serving with the DCLI and SCLI in Osnabruck has answered his last call.. Frank was not the smartest of soldiers but made up for it by being a very good soldier in the field and an excellent rifle shot and a member of the Battalion shooting team for a number of years and fired for the Battalion at Bisley
He latterly lived in the St Ives area of Cornwall and that is where his funeral service is being held on Monday 8th December at 1100hrs at the Bedford Chapel.
A group of the West Cornwall Branch of the Association along with Standard will be attending. – Rest in Peace Frank. (Info supplied by Terry Joll)
