Bomber Command Clasp

It appears that members of 624 and relatives who have applied for the Bomber Command Clasp have been refused - THIS CAN NOT BE RIGHT

The reason given is that they did not fly missions from the UK

Barry Savage and Lee Miller have been working on this and have now started an on-line petition please follow the link and help us

SIGN HERE TO SUPPORT THIS CAUSE

And also please let us have your views on this matter and lets see if we can our petition can change this unfair ruling

Dad's funeral is at 2pm on Friday 20th Dec at Bournemouth Crematorium in Dorset to be followed by a wake at my sister's house

Kind regards, Clare (John's eldest daughter)

At 1950hrs on the same day I received the following message:

Heather and Diane, the daughters of Ivor Rhys Soar wish to inform you that he passed away on the 12th October

You will both always be remembered

Our thoughts and sincere condolences go to both families of these two men who gave so much that we could enjoy the freedom we have today
