We conducted a funeral for Clive Knowles a veteran of The Royal Fusiliers. This was a social services funeral and at the funeral only 6 people were in attendance. There were three Standard Bearers from the Royal British Legion. In their own words when I thanked them “It’s no more than they deserve mate you know we will attend if we can and that’s 99% off the time”. And “All ex-service men & women surely deserved a fitting & honourable send off when they make the final journey”.
