Four ex-Stafford Troops (Teuch Brewer, John Banks, Tich Salter, and Jim Morrison) were honoured to join Alan’s Family and Friends to celebrate his life and escort him on the journey to his final summit. It was a very moving service with memories and tributes from Alan’s daughters and granddaughters. After the service, we joined the family in one of his favourite hostelries to celebrate his life and to meet the family and friends.
Alan will be missed on the first weekend in March when ex-Stafford troops attend their annual reunion. He attended regularly over the years making the long journey north even until he was well into his eighties. His family said it was one of the highlights of his year and even against their pleas for him to take it easy he was determined not to miss it. A true Troop
