THE FUNERAL SERVICE OF OUR CLUB PRESIDENT LT COL EB BARRASS OBE
7 March 2012 - Puttenham, Surrey

I represented our Section at the funeral service of our Club President Lt Col EB Barrass OBE on 7 March 2012 held in his village church at Puttenham, Surrey. There were around eighty family and friends filling the church which included past and present members of the RREC Management Committee including the current Chairman. Members of Eric's family gave very interesting and informative eulogies before leaving for Guildford Crematorium. Eric's coffin, draped in the Union flag, carrying his medals and service cap was preceded to the altar by a lone drummer and afterwards taken from the church in a 1957 Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud hearse and followed by Eric's own 25/30. Refreshments were served to all the guests in Eric's home in nearby School Lane. He will be greatly missed by one and all. On behalf of all our Section members a donation was made to the Barrass family's chosen charities. A memorial service will be held at a later date, details to be advised.
