    I would like the West Midlands Branch for all the help the Vice Chairman Ray Collister MBE gave to James Fay family with the service to celebrate the life of Warrant Officer II James Fay
    He served from 1945-1967.
    James was 93 when he passed away in Peterborough Hospital with covid 19.
    Vice Chairman Ray Collister MBE and your Branch Standard Bearer came to the service,due to covid many members where not able to be at the service.
    My name is Harold Shaun Arthur everyone knows me by Shaun in my family.
    I served in the 1st Bn Irish Guards from 1982-1996.
    Because of covid I wasn’t able to go see James at the Tallington care home,
    But before covid I would go see Jim in his home in Stamford and then to care home
    When he to move there
    I would bring Jim Irish Guards dinners in Birmingham Liverpool and London
    Over the years
    Please pass on my thanks to Vice Chairman and the Standard Bearer.
    Yours
