A Chance to honour the memory of a young servicewoman.


Jane Barnecoat-Chongwe’s son, Peter, is a serving member of the RAF.  Peter’s friend, Emily Kendrick, also served with the RAF (including time spent in Afghanistan).   Sadly, Emily recently died of ovarian cancer, and her funeral will take place next week in Cardiff.  More details on the BBC Wales Newslink. Emily’s parents will receive on her behalf a medal for Service in Afghanistan.  Tragically, Emily was only 25 years of age.  There will be a Flypast, which Peter and other RAF / military personnel will attend .  

We continue to owe so much to our young women and men, serving, as members of Her Majesty’s Armed forces .  We thank God for them, firm in the knowledge that Emily will rest in peace and rise in glory.
