Mr Kenneth Hurley - Late KOYLI and 2LI

It is with great sadness that I have to inform members that Mr Kenneth 'Ken' Hurley, late KOYLI and 2LI passed away on 2nd Feb 2022 aged 86.

Ken served as a member of the KOYLI and then 2nd Battalion The Light Infantry where he attained the rank of Serjeant. Ken was an active member of the Association and a member of Wakefield Branch. Ken was highly respected within the Association and with those who served with him in 2LI.

Ken was the son of a KOYLI, Captain J Hurley MC who was honoured for his bravery during WWI. Ken displayed his father's medals with pride.

Our thoughts and condolences at the sad time are with Ken's wife Debbie, his family, and his many friends in the Association and from 2LI.


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

Rest in Peace Ken.

Cede Nullis.
