The town website has just been informed that Eddie Grenfell, who joined with Whitchurch resident Roy Dykes, to campaign for – and get! – an Arctic Star medal, passed away shortly after 8am this morning.
Roy Dykes, who understandably is upset at this sad news, added, “I am still trying to get the Russian medal for him. I have written to the Russian embassy.”
Last year, Eddie Grenfell came to Whitchurch — see our story on that HERE.
Our condolences to the family.
