Geoff Young, a 4th Battalion The Wiltshire Regiment veteran from WW2, who wrote a book providing a soldiers view of the 4th Battalions exploits from D Day until the VE day.

The following message has been received from Geoff’ son Mark:

It is with great sadness that I write to inform you that our beloved father passed away last Friday 9th June, after a stay in hospital following a fall at home.

The Regimental Museum played a very important part in his life, and he was delighted to have received the Legion d' Honneur medal last July along with his friend Roy Goulding. He was always most grateful to you and your colleagues for arranging that most memorable event.

Margrit our mother is now very frail and has requested a very small family funeral. In the meantime we are requesting that donations in Dad's memory be made to the Wardrobe Museum

I will be in touch when I have more details of arrangements.

our most sincere condolences to his family
