PPA Obituaries



In the Obituaries section we plan to reprint PPA-related obituaries from national and local newspapers, or from our own publications, but it obviously takes some time to transcribe them. The first two, for Popski's widow Pamela Matthews and Sergeant Eric Brooks, whose funerals were held on the same day, are taken from the 4th edition of foPPA's newsletter The Astrolabe and the third, for Lieutenant Stephen Wallbridge, is from the Libyan Sunday Ghibli. Sergeant Bill O'Leary's was written by foPPA and then taken up by The Daily Telegraph.

Major John Campbell's was also written by foPPA, and much of it was taken up by The Times, The Daily Telegraph and The Guardian.
