    This from the RUR Assn:

    "It is with sadness that I report the death of RSM Billy McConnell which I was informed of earlier today.

    Billy was our last D-Day veteran and a true Rifleman who served post-war in both Palestine and Korea. He was instrumental in organising the memorials to 1st and 2nd Bns. RUR at Longueval and Cambes en Plaine and was very much a fixture at the annual Regimental commemorations in Normandy in June. He will be much missed."
