Weston-on-the-Green RBL Branch - As decided on the last British Legion Branch Meeting held at the last reunion the Airborne Signals Branch will close at the end of this period (31 Aug).

Members are requested to take action as follows:

a. Transfer their membership to St James's Branch in London

b. Cancel their membership by writing to the Headquarters in London

c. Contact their bank and cancel their Direct Debit

It is important you take action before 31 Aug otherwise you may find yourself out of pocket.

We regret having to close the branch but the current Committee have held their post for the past 12 years and there are no volunteers to take over these appointments.

Jimmy, Very sad news. I noticed that he was quite frail at Dick's funeral but nonetheless a very proud man and obviously very fond of Dick. Peter

Sad to report that our Airborne Signals buddy in Shetland died earlier this morning following infection complications. You will remember that Ebie proudly attended Dick's funeral and placed his Arnhem cap badge in Dick's coffin. RIP real airborne hero

In view of the response and the fact that the NMA is undergoing a major redevelopment, I am suggesting that we do not do the usual this year. Marg & I will obviously attend on the day to pay due respect to comrades. Appreciate any thoughts

Many thanks to Stan & Deanna for their efforts to give us all a brilliant weekend. So very pleased to see Paddy Dillon after all this time (He was still trying to sell me a battle ship - private joke). Unfortunatly when I got home I had to go straight to A&E and was kept in for a week of tests, seems I've now got a bowel cancer. The team looking after me are meeting tomorrow to see the way forward. Will keep you informed. Once again great to see everyone Jess
