We’ll meet again (on 15 September?)

ROYAL BRITISH LEGION

Loddon and District with Haddiscoe sub-branch

VJ DAY. Hopefully you were able to join in nationally with last month’s VJ Day’s 75th anniversary commemorations and to see, locally, the many wreaths left on local war memorials. We hope you have also seen our branch’s VJ display board in the window of Young’s in Bridge Street Loddon. It is well worth a visit and will be there for a while longer yet.

It is with sorrow that we note the passing to Higher Service of two of our long serving members, Col Thomas Brooke (from Mundham) and William (Bill) Clutten, who some of you will remember from his time running his newsagent’ shop in Chedgrave with his wife Jessie. Our very sincere thoughts and condolences go to the families of both these gentlemen, and they can be assured that we, as their local Legion family, will not forget them.

Legion branch meeting arrangements are still very much up in the air but, all being well, we will be able to meet again as usual in the King’s Head Loddon on Tuesday 15 September at 7.00 pm. Christine Hartley (branch secretary, 01508-521136) can confirm nearer the time.
