Tom (Tam) Winters BEM

It is with the greatest regret that we have to announce the death of Tom (Tam) Winters.
Tam passed away suddenly on July 14th 2012: a great soldier and Scotsman. Although he had lived in Hereford for 30 years, he retained his Scottish roots to the end. His send-off on 26th July was a full on military ceremony: Highlanders to carry him and out on his final journey; pipers and standard bearer, and, at his request, a bugle playing the Last Post.
The amount of people who turned out for the funeral was overwhelming, and showed the love and respect that his friends and comrades felt.
He was a Seaforth, then a Queen's Own Highlander for the full 22 years; then affiliated to the SAS for 10 years.
Would you be kind enough to post his death on your website, with my email address, as I would love to hear from any old comrades who remembered him.
