A post on facebook by Ken Marshall
For the attention of those living in the Great Yarmouth/Gorleston area. A 94 year old RAF veteran has died recently. He has no surviving family and we are concerned that very few people will attend the burial.
John Davies spent 3 years in the US and Canada, before being posted to India. His funeral is at the small Cemetary inside the gates of the Crematoriam in Gorleston.
It would be good if we can get a good turn out to see this gentleman on his final journey. Funeral is at 09.30hrs on Wednesday 23rd December.
Update (26 Dec 2015):
- More than 100 strangers gather at funeral of Great Yarmouth RAF veteran after Facebook campaign
- Crowds turn out for funeral of RAF veteran with no family after Facebook appeal
