Ron Gomez 

Born in Calcutta in 1936, Ron Gomez moved to Twickenham in 1954 and worked for British Rail. He carried out his National Service from 1956 to 1958 with the Royal Artillery.  He rejoined the Royal Artillery in 1959, reached the rank of Sergeant and served in Cyprus, Germany, Hong Kong and did two tours in Northern Ireland. 

After retiring from the army in 1977, he lived in Westbury and worked for the London Underground until retiring in 2001. He moved to Invergordon in 2003, and as an enthusiastic Legion Scotland member, he helped revive the Invergordon branch of the Royal British Legion Scotland and served on the committee as chairman up until he passed away on 14 May. 

He was a keen fencer and had a love of horses which he shared with his wife Alison. Our thoughts are with Alison, his daughters Caroline, Sarah, Rosemary and their extended families. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.




The Branch President of Wick, Canisbay and Latheron Branch has sadly notified us that eight members passed away in recent years. They have not previously received their Last Post, and a more detailed obituary for each will be published shortly.
