7 August 2018

OFFICER'S PERSONAL OCCURRENCE

1. All will be aware of the death of Peter Carrington on 9th July 2018. In addition to his many qualities and achievements, Peter was a courageous and loyal Grenadier, who was a most generous benefactor to The Colonel's Fund ever since its inception in 2007. Not only that, he was kind and friendly to all those with whom he came into contact at whatever level.

2. The reason that this notice has been delayed is that I was awaiting the date of Peter's Memorial Service. It is on 31st January 2019 at 12 noon in Westminster Abbey. It may be a 'ticketed' so anyone wishing to attend should send an email to Angie at lordc@carington.co.uk. She will then send information/tickets directly, as necessary.

3. If you would like to write to Rupert Carrington, Peter's Son, the address is: The Manor House, Bledlow, Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire HP27 9PE.
