4th September, 2020
Sadly, I was today informed of the passing of one of our members, ex-Warrant Officer Clarence Albert (Bert) Dixon – 4th Entry, who died on Sunday 2nd August 2020.
I thought it appropriate to include the following comments sent to me by Bert’s daughter Lesley regarding his funeral.
‘The funeral people were really nice to us. They draped the British flag over the coffin and they placed my dad`s RAF cap on top. Following the hearse and seeing the flag and cap on it caused me to cry. The service was lovely, although tearful. He had a really good send off for his last flight. The flower arrangement was in the colours of the RAF insignia, it was truly beautiful.
The weather held off long enough for us because the remnants of hurricane Laura came through just after lunch and poured rain for the rest of the day into this morning.’
