July Last Post

Today at a relatively subdued ceremony a few people were present for the July Last Post.

Paul McCue of the Secret WW2 Learning Network read out the Individual Remembrances. We remembered Soldato (Private) Guiseppe Piazza and Warrant Officer Bruce Ferguson Butchart.

Soldato Piazza was a member of the Italian army and died on 5th July 1945, he is buried in Brookwood Military Cemetery.

Warrant Officer Butchart was with the Royal Australian Air Force. He was 20 years old when we died on 5th July 1945 and is buried in Brookwood Military Cemetery. He is also remembered on the Australia War Memorial, Canberra and the World War II Honour Roll, National War Memorial of SA, Adelaide.

We had members of the Suffolk Re-enactment Regiment with us on parade.

Alan Lopez was our Standard Bearer and Mrs Ruth Moore sounder the Last Post.
