Gunner Eric Rabbit was awarded the Military Medal for his gallantry in Burma. Sadly he died almost penniless in 1987 having had to pawn his medals. Read more about his award here and then click on the newspaper report shown there to download a page about his funeral.

God and the Soldier, all men adore, In time of danger and not before.
When the danger is passed and all things righted, God is forgotten, and the Soldier slighted.
