    Sapper Watson was a Commando and Airborne Sapper.It is hoped that Sappers and others,of these persuasions will be present.

    Early arrival is suggested,as there is limited parking near the Church
  2. Rest easy, fellow sapper. Ubique.

    Freedom is never free, its always the ultimate price.
  3. Attended Davids funeral as part of the Police contingent. can i just say how proud it made you feel to be an Engineer.(ex)

    What a class job the boys from 33 did. I have lost count of the number of people who commented on how professional they were.

    An estimated 3500 attended the funeral.

    A great send off for David

    Well done 33.

  4. Agreed.I was there too.I particularly liked the firing party with alternate maroon and green berets.It was quite one of the best military funerals that I have been to,and a fitting send off for a very brave young Sapper.
