Just wished to pay tribute to my late mother Lance Corporal Maureen Burney, who served with the WRAC for 3 years from 1970 - 1973. She sadly passed away of March this year and is dearly missed. She was a very patriotic women and always enjoyed talking of her army days. She met my father Corporal Keith Taylor while they were both on active duty in Rheindahlen, Germany, and they both bought themselves out of service to be married in 1973. I have lots of her Army Pictures and her Red Cert of Service book, and Bible given on enlistment. My younger sister and I had a union jack flag draped over her coffin as opposed to the standard white cloth and we had servicemen, (army/navy), as poll bearers. She would have loved it. She came from an army background and was very proud. I am on Facebook should anyone wish to see further pictures I have, some are from the barracks and the Naffi Clubs, and group photos. Rest In Peace Mam, Lest We Forget. Lots Of Love from your Children, Russell Taylor, Charlotte Taylor, & Ashleigh Burney....You will be forever in our Hearts and thank you for serving our country.xxxxxxxxx
