L/Cpl Paul Muirhead and the Stratford-upon-Avon War Memorial

Discussion in 'Charities and Welfare' started by handysnaks, Jul 10, 2009.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Lance Corporal Paul Muirhead died from wounds sustained during a Taleban attack on his base at Musa Quala in Helmand Province on Friday 1 September 2006.

    I don't believe that he was born in Stratford but he went to Stratford Hugh School, worked in Stratford prior to joining the Army and his parents live in Stratford-upon-Avon and pay council tax to that council.

    Pauls father asked the loccal RBL if Pauls name could be placed on the Stratford war memorial. He was told that as he was not born in Stratford it was not possible. After explaining Pauls history in Stratford the RBL official said he would have to contact the council. A year later, no response and no name on the memorial :x

    There is a facebook group with regard to this local issue.

    For those of you that do this, could you please take a bit of time to join the group (if you support the cause ).
