Death of 2622146 Leonard Harmer

10 February 2016


It is my sad duty to inform you of the death of 2622146 Leonard Harmer who passed away on 9th February 2016, peacefully in hospital after a very short illness. He was 94.

Leonard was a Member of the Wigan, St. Helens and District Branch for many years, and continued to show interest in Branch affairs despite no longer being able to attend meetings or events.

In November 2015, Leonard was presented with the Legion d’honneur (Legion of Honour) by the Mayor of Wigan, on behalf of the French Government who decided that all surviving service personnel who took part in the liberation of France towards the end of World War 2 should be awarded their Legion d’honneur. The article will be in this years' Grenadier Gazette.
