RIP Les Allan 27th March 2013

We sadly have to report the passing away of Les Allan, our President and founder of the Association in the early hours of 27th March in Wexham Park hospital in Slough.

Les has been the kingpin of the association for the last thirty years and he will be greatly missed by the committee and his fellow ex-kriegies.

If you wish to pay your respects to Les, his funeral will take place at 12.30 on Friday 12th April at Slough Cemetery and Crematorium, Stoke Road, Slough, Berkshire SL2 5AX.

The family have requested that donations be made to the association welfare fund in lieu of flowers.

Please address any enquiries to the Chairman, Mr Philip Chinnery at NEXPOWA@fsmail.net
