EMERSON ' LARRY ' HAMBLIN 14th/20th Kings Hussars

HAD THE FOLLOWING FROM BRIAN ' SOLLY ' MOULTON:-

" Just been informed (about an hour and a half ago) that Emerson "Larry" Hamblin died on the 17th August. I was making my usual monthly call to him at his home in Memsie, Aberdeenshire, only to be told of his passing. Spoke to his youngest daughter, Verona, who is up there organising arrangements.
Larry is to be buried in Barbados, but there will be a memorial service in Sheffield where a number of his relatives live. Verona is going to inform me when and where, but possibly around 6th September.
Larry has been suffering for a number of years now with Prostate cancer and other ailments, in fact, we had a bit of a contest going as to which of us would "Pop our clogs" first. Sadly, Larry won too soon. When I know more I'll let you all know.

R.I.P. dear friend, one of the characters of my era."

LATEST, JUST IN FROM BRIAN MOULTON

Pete,
Do you want to add this to the Noah's Arc site obit for Larry please. Sent her a Regimental Flage to accompany him to his place of rest in Barbados.
Update on Emerson "Larry" Hamblin:
Larry's daughter Verona informed me that his body is now with an undertaker in Croydon, and is due to be repatriated to Barbados on Friday 14th September.
As she had to stay in Scotland to organise his transportation South, the planned memorial service in Sheffield is delayed, but as soon as I know more I'll post it on here (and also inform HHQ)
Should anyone want an address to which sympathy/condolence cards be sent, they should be sent to:

Ms Verona Hamblin
24 Harwood Court.,
Thorp Estate.
Sheffield.
S2 4SR
