Maj (Retd) Malcolm Best - Late LI(V)

Updated: Mar 7, 2023

It is with great sadness that I have to inform members that Maj (Retd) Malcolm Best late LI(V), died on 7 Feb 23 aged 74.

Malcolm enlisted into the LI(V) serving with LI(V), 8LI, and KOYY(LI). Malcolm had a long career serving the Wakefield community as an employee of Wakefield City Council and later with Wakefield Metropolitan District Council.

Malcolm will be greatly missed by association members who knew and served with him.

Our thoughts and condolences at the sad time are with Malcolm's family.


As the bugle sounds 'No More Parades' and you take your place in the FRV,

your duty done with honour and distinction.

Rest in Peace Malcolm.

Cede Nullis.
