Farewell Fund For Sue Nelmes
Sue Nelmes is leaving the Ministry of Defence after many years, the last 12 of which have been working in the Regimental Offices in Salisbury under whichever Cap Badge had its Regimental Flag flying from the mast head during that period. Sue has always been a very people orientated person and has been the first contact for many who have had to provide the sad news of the passing of a regimental colleague. Her support for the Association has been first class and it is primarily because of requests from members who value her that it has been decided to set up a fund to present her with a farewell memento.
