Sadly - David K Laird
Ex XV Sqn Lancaster member, David Laird passed away 30 Dec 2017. He was immensely proud of his time with XV. The programme of events of the disbandment was always on his table and he had a lovely week at the MacRobert Trust during the Summer.
Aged 92 David led a very interesting life. After the war, he served as a Major in the Lovat Scouts and he headed youth development on Sheffield Council. A keen sportsman he played professional football in Scotland and was in the football team of every RAF station on which he served. He was still ski instructing in Italy well into his 80's!
The current plan is that David's funeral will take place at the Friockheim Crematorium on the afternoon of Thursday 11 Jan 18.
