Tommy Bamforth

John Dixon has just been informed by the nephew of Tommy Bamforth - an In-Pensioner at Chelsea Hospital and a Veteran of the 10th Battalion, The Durham Light Infantry - of his death on Thursday 30th May 2019.

Tommy was a native of Spennymoor and served with the B.E.F. in 1940, being taken Prisoner of War at Ficheux on 20th May 1940.

A few years ago he attended a DLI event in Durham and talked to John Dixon at some length.

A real gentleman."
