Robin Holland

Post by Bob_H » Sun Aug 11, 2013 4:41 pm

With deepest sadness for the loss of a personal friend, I have to report that Mick (Holland), via 'Gita, has reported the death of Robin at 3:30pm today (11/8/2013)

Regular visitors to our Forum will know that Robin has put up a long, brave, fight against illness. His own message of farewell was recorded here: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=3293

With heartache we saw you suffer,
As we watched you fade away,
Our hearts were very saddened,
As you fought so hard to stay.

We knew you had to leave us,
But you never went alone,
For part of us went with you
Hawk's do it for one of their own.



We offer our deepest condolences to Gita, Debbie, brother Mick, and the family.


Funeral Details:

The funeral Service will be held at 13:00 on Wednesday 21st August at the Harbour View Burial & Memorial Gardens, Poole, Dorset, BH16 6AN.

Followed by a gathering at St Peter's Finger pub, Lytchett Minster, BH16 6JE.

Family flowers only
Donations may be made to Joseph Weld Hospice (Herringston Road, Dorchester, DT1 2SL, Tel: 01305 215300)

Guard of Honour
It has become a tradition in recent years that we provide a guard of honour for our deceased comrade, and Gita has asked that it happen on this occasion. Would gentlemen please form a column immediately following the service where we will honour Robin in our usual way.

Despite knowing this was going to happen,it has still come as a great shock. Robin was a good friend for many years and a true 14/20th King's Hussar. My condolences to Gita and all the family. R.I.P.
