RAF Leuchars Photo: a fantastic RAF Leuchars Photograph Featuring Andrew Birkby mounts a solo guard-of-honour at Matt Maley's funeral during the 2020 Pandemic

Photograph Taken On Friday, May 22, 2020


Matthew aka 'Matt' Maley served with the RAF Leuchars MRT from 1955-57 during his National Service. He died on 4th May 2020 during, but not because of, the Covid-19 pandemic. The distancing and other regulations meant that Matt's family could not attend Matt's funeral on 15th May but fortunately Andrew Birkby who lived locally was able to attend, represent the MRA and mount this solo guard-of-honour. Matt's coffin had the MRA drape and an MRA wreath on it.View image on Flickr
