William (Ali) Barber

 

Bill (Ali) Barber, formerly of 1st Platoon 9 Field Coy (Airborne) died on Saturday 27th January. Bill took part in the battle of Arnhem where he was taken POW. A lifetime friend of Len 'Tubby' Raggett, who died last year, Bill was a regular attendee at the Oosterbeek service of remembrance, and attended all the early Double Hill Services. Bill and Len together with Jigger Price and Harry Stokes were a great group of friends, who gave tremendous support and encouragement to the Double Hills event. Bill had suffered poor health in recent years, but never allowed this to dampen his enthusiasm for life. His friends and colleagues will greatly miss a grand character.
