Dear Friends
Roy Philip Grant No.4 Commando HQ troop sadly passed away on 30th November at the tender age of 98 1/2. He will be greatly missed by all his family and friends.
His daughter Rachel Henderson adds
Sorry to say we have some sad news Roy has passed away, he went into hospital on Sunday with breathing problems and developed severe pneumonia with heart problems and died early Wednesday morning, it's been a bit of a shock as he was only working in his garden on Friday last week, at 98 1/2 we thought he would make 100 but sadly not to be, we will place his beret on the coffin.

Card being sent from No 4.
Roy was the only British No.4 Commando to represent his comrades at the Commemorations in 2019 in Flushing and remembered them with honour by laying the wreath. He and his family were with us on the ferry retracing when he came over in an LCA from Breskin to Flushing on 1/11/44. Our No.4 Commando family will miss him and our thoughts and prayers are with Rachel her husband Jeremy and all family and friends at this sad time. God's richest blessing.

Rachel has informed me her Dads funeral is booked for 21st at 2pm at Odstock Church, Odstock village, near Salisbury, Wiltshire. Rachel sent in the photos below. Roy is on the left.

Rest in peace Roy.
