A grant of £500 towards funeral costs was made to a 70 year old former Sergeant in the Scots Guards with 13 years service. The veteran served in Cyprus, Malaya, Hong Kong and Northern Ireland. The sudden death of his wife and a lack of savings resulted in the former soldier being unable to meet the cost of his wife’s funeral.
