We have been told that David's funeral will take place on Tuesday, 21st June at 11 o'clock at South Bristol Crematorium. The family have asked that any donations in his memory should be made to The Royal British Legion, Nailsea Branch, with which David was also very involved.
It is with great sadness that we have to report the death of David Milner, our treasurer. He has been an enthusiastic member for many years and has kept our finances in order for several of them. Not only did he share his interest in his own family history with us but also his encyclopaedic knowledge of the Battle of Waterloo. He leaves us with many happy and grateful memories of his involvement with the society and we extend our sympathy to Maureen and his family.
