It is my sad duty to inform members of the passing of former ACWS Drum Major John Fairfield on Friday 1st February 2019, after a period of illness.
John was 85 years old and was a member of ACWS from 1994 to 2012 when he retired.
Our thoughts are with his wife Marie, family and friends at this very sad time.
There will be a service for him at 10:30am on Monday 11th February 2019 at St Philips Church, Orrell Road, Liverpool, L21 8NZ; then 11.30 at Bootle Cemetary, Linacre Lane, Liverpool, L20 6ET.
The family have requested no flowers but welcome donations in John's memory to either:
- Dingwall Museum Trust, Townhouse, 65 High St, Dingwall, Scotland IV15 9RY or
- Royal British Legion Crosby Branch, 25 Moor Lane, Crosby, Liverpool, L23 2SE
Cabarfeidh Gu Bràth (Deer's Antlers Forever). Taken from the slogan at the end of the regimental toast of The Queen's Own Highlanders of which I believe John was a member in the 50's & 60's.
