    Following the various stories in the press about ex-Servicemen who've died alone and would have been the only attendees at their own funerals but for the willingness of other ex-Servicemen and -women to go along and pay their respects, an ex-Bootie mate of mine has decided to do something about it.

    He's recently been to the funeral in his local area of a former Corps member and, basically, to ensure that those alone don't pass alone, he's set up a support group via facebook.

    The intention is compile a database of who's where, etc, and generally facilitate to offer a send-off befitting as and when the need/desire arises.

    The group can be found here:

    Please contribute or help in any way you can.

    Thanks,
