Obituaries, Deaths and Funerals
Dear Colleagues, it is my sad duty to announce the
passing of a former Snowdrop. My father 'Fred' Hillocks passed
away this morning aged 88 following a battle with cancer. I
doubt if any on here will have known him. He served for 5
years in the RAF Police in the early 1950s. His first posting
was Cottesmore followed by RAF Hospital Rinteln Germany where
he met my Mum. As he said to me "88 not out, not a bad
innings"! RIP Snowdrop
I understand that Mike Honeyman died at home in Melksham on Monday 31st August.He served from 1953 to 1977, leaving in the rank of a Sergeant as a Dog Instructor.
Today members of the RAFPA
Wiltshire Branch attended the funeral
of former RAFP Sgt Mike Honeyman. Mike served from 1953 to
1977 and spent time
as a QPD Instructor. He was a long standing member of the
RAFPA having joined
some 21 years ago. A small Honour Guard comprising of Keith
Button, Peter Todd,
Brian Flinn, Mike Archer, Ivan Carey and George Brookes paid
their respects as
the hearse approached the Chapel.
May Mike rest in peace.
