Mr David Nutton - Late KOYLI

It is with great sadness that I have to inform members that Mr David Nutton late KOYLI, died on 10 November 2022 aged 85.

David enlisted as a National Serviceman into the KOYLI in January 1956 serving in Cyprus with 1st Bn KOYLI rising to the rank of Corporal before his discharge in January 1958. David will be greatly missed by all members of the Association and in particular members of Pontefract Branch.

Our thoughts and condolences at the sad time are with David's wife Jean and his family, and his many friends in the Association.


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 David.

Cede Nullis.
