  1. Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this.
    An ex-para is having his funeral at Aldershot this Friday and any ex-Paras or service perssonel are invited.

    Ex-Para Max Cockitt, who died in February, is being cremated in Aldershot on Friday, December 10, 2010. None of his relatives could be contacted so after a long search the council has agreed to pay for the cremation and service.
    Joanna Blackmore, a friend of his, is asking any ex-service personnel who want to come to the service to come along.
    Details on Max's service are sketchy. Joanna thinks he was in 1 Para and served during the Troubles. He was working in the Globe Trotter pub in Aldershot before it closed down in 1981. He died on February 17 aged 63. He was originally from Israel. He had a 31-year-old daughter called Tanya who could not be traced.

    The funeral is at 12pm, December 10 at Aldershot Crematorium, Guildford Road, Aldershot, Hants. Joanna has paid for a trumpeter to play The Last Post at the service.
    You can contact Joanna on 07966 449878 to let her know if you are coming.
  2. I've posted this over on the Airborne Forces website, someone on there may know him.
  3. Thank you, the further the message goes, the better
  4. It's also on 'facebook' on the Traf's page!

    Here's a photo of him!
