Can any ex mil or BAE staff help?Attention all callsigns.

This is a call to arms for anyone able to attend the funeral of 92 year old RAF veteran, Francis Raymond Cox, who sadly passed away recently.

His widow Jennifer is fearful that no-one will turn up to send him off on his final posting. She would be absolutely devastated if this was the case.

Jennifer believes Francis was in logistics and that he served in the Far East. His service was before they met so she doesn’t know a great deal about it, although it has been verified.

Francis worked for BAE Systems until his retirement and lived with Jennifer in Stoke Gifford, Bristol, until he had to move into a care home.

His funeral will take place at All Saints Church in Winterbourne Down at 13:30 on the 19th of November. The church is on Down Road, Winterbourne Down, Winterbourne, Bristol, BS36 1BW.

If you are able to attend, please arrive by 13:00, as Jennifer would love Francis to be brought into the church with a guard of honour.

Flowers are very welcome as Francis was a keen gardener and loved his flowers. The wake is yet to be confirmed but details will be posted as soon as they are received.

Thank you.
