Pete Collins’s Funeral

I just heard the sad news that Pete Collins died in August.

Pete served on 3 Sqn and IV Sqn at Gutersloh on the Harrier GR3 in the 80’s and had many friends on IV. Condolences to Gudrun and the family.

These are the details for COL’s funeral:

Gudrun asks that people who are planning to attend reply with numbers to collinsfamilybse@gmail.com
Funeral Service to celebrate the life of Peter James Collins
St Edmundsbury Cathedral

The service will be followed by a wake at Bury St Edmunds Farmers Club, 10 Northgate Street, Bury St Edmunds, IP33 1HQ from 3:30pm-7pm.

*Limited parking is available at the Farmers Club however it is only a short walk from the cathedral. 

In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations to SANE mental health charity be made in Peter’s name. Donations can be made online. Please reference Peter Collins in the inspiration box so that all funds will be allocated for medical research. http://www.sane.org.uk/how_you_can_help/donate

    Pete was on IV(AC) with me, mid-80’s under Tony McKeon. A bloody good pilot and friend. What happened? Saw him last year and he was fit & well. And punchy with it, as always. RIP COL.

  • Thanks for that Jim – I’d forgotten that Pete was on IV after I left.
