Yesterday afternoon we said goodbye to an old Royal Sussex Soldier, Fred Winborn, who was the last member of the Hastings branch to have served in Korea (I know there are still others about but Fred was OUR last one)
over 60 family and friends attended and 20 members of the regimental assn.
Hastings branch had both standards in attendance along with the Queen's Colour (Union Flag) and the RBL standard.
Fred had been a member of the Hastings branch as long as anyone can remember and always supported us in all that we did.
With his pure white hair and beard he was the perfect Santa and used to raise money throughout the year to buy presents for the children in hospital on Christmas day and then deliver them on Christmas morning, himself
So it was with heavy heart we bid our friend farewell.
