Sad farewells, in May /June



We regret to inform you  of  the deaths  of  the following members;



(1)  Heinz CORNY KAHLMANN, known as Henry, who died in May. His funeral has already taken place in the Jewish Cemetery in the Heer Strasse. Henry, who played an active part in Legion affairs in his younger days, was struck by ill-health in later years. He became confined to a wheel chair but was admirably supported by his wife Kitti.As a child he was one of the last children to leave Berlin on one of the “Kinder Transports”   Our deepest sympathy accompanies Kitti in her sad bereavement.


(2)  JEAN EATON.- probably our oldest member who recently passed away peacefully in her sleep. June had something in common with our Patron, Her Majesty the Queen. They were both born in “1926” and both served during the lasr war in the ATS. Jean was probably the only ex ATS lady living in Germany. When she first came to Berlin many years ago she and her late husband,Don, did sterling work on the welfare side of the Legion. Jean had many fine qualities not least her rich  sense of humour which endeared her to a very wide circle. She never forgot her Scottish heritage and it was most amusing to be present at a conversation between her (from Glasgow) and Jim Robertson (from Edinburgh and our Welfare Chairman) when such words as “Gay Gordons” and  the “Veleta” came up. She will be sadly missed.

Her funeral service will take place at St. George’s Church on Wedenesday,8th June,2016 at 10.00hrs.



(3) Mrs  BERTIE, the widow of Ron, passed away on 28 May,2016. Ron, who died some years ago, was an active member of the Branch and he could always count on the full support of his wife in all his activities. Although we have not seen much of her at the Branch recently, she has always kept up close contact with Jim Robertson

and Jim has been visiting her regularly.

We have expressed our deepest sympathy and offers of help,to her daughter……..?

Mrs Bertie’s funeral takes place in “Den Kisseln” cemetery Spandau on Tuesday, 7th June,1916 at 10.00hrs.
