It is with much regret we report the death of two of our members. Ed Stirrop was an active member of the Solihull Branch. After the amalgamation Ed was not in good health and unfortunately was never able to attend our joint meetings. He is however still well remember by the branch. He was an Wireless Operator Air Gunner on Liberators, 223 Squadron.
Norman Shearer, a pilot with Flying Training Command, was a member of both Solihull and their Chairman. He also was a member of Birmingham branch; on amalgamation,he became the vice chairman. Norman was a strong supporter of the amalgamated branches.
Both of our comrades died on the same day, 19th March. Eds fueral is at the Robin Hood Crematorium, Solihull, on Thursday 29th March, at 3.15pm
