Len Keeling reports.
On behalf of his family it is with great sadness that I report the death of 23110761 Pte Ted Perring on the 1st June 22 aged 85.
Ted served as a National Serviceman from Feb 1955-Feb1957. Completing his basic Trg at Resevoir Camp Gloucester. Upon joining the Battalion he became a Regt Signaller and served in Kenya, Aden,Bahrain & Sharjah. He was also part of a Glosters contingent on board a RN Frigate off Kuwait during the Suez Crisis, ending his career in Nicosia Cyprus.
He became a life long member of the Regt Association attending many reunions and functions. A proud Gloster who reminisced about those days right up to the last few days if his life I am in touch with his family and friends and there will be a service held at St Mary’s Church Yate on the 24 June followed by cremation at Westerliegh Crem.
