What's the bobby with relation to a military funeral for a retired serviceman? My old man is about to pass away with cancer, probably in the next fortnight, he served in the RAF (MTSS) for over 35 years and retired as a WO 20 years ago. He lives with Mum in Lincoln and his last posting was at Scampton. Would he be allowed a flag draped coffin, guard of honour, last post etc, or is it a case of bury the civvie? I live abroad, so it's a tad difficult speaking to the SWO at Scampton. Any advice would be welcome. Thanks.
