Martin Talling reports:It is my sad duty to inform the passing of Mr K Attwood, Royal Berkshire Regiment and 5th Battalion Gloucestershire Regiment, Ken passed away on 27th May 2022. Roger Smith has been the point of contact with the family as Ken was the former standard-bearer of the Severn Branch. The funeral is at The Oak Chapel, Cheltenham Crematorium on Thursday 16th June at 2 pm.
Stan Knipe wrote the following about Ken; I have had a phone call from Mrs Jenny Attwood saying that her husband had passed away on the 25th of May 2022, He was in the Royal Berkshire Regiment between 1949 and 1951 and served in Eritrea East Africa with B company. When his 2 years were up he transferred to the 5th Battalion The Gloucestershire Regiment for 3 years. After leaving the Army, he contacted me and wanted to help me start an association branch in Gloucester, which we called Gloucestershire Severn Branch. Ken decided he wanted to be the Standard Bearer, he was living in Cheltenham when he died at age 92, and he will be missed.
The Regimental Association sends our sincere condolences on behalf of all members to the family and friends of Ken.
