A grieving son has issued an 11th hour plea to find a bugler to play at his father’s military style funeral in Doncaster this Wednesday.

The funeral of former Lancashire Fusilier Geoffrey Pooley will take place at St Michael’s Church in Rossington - and his son Michael Fisher has launched a last minute plea for a musician to perform The Last Post at the ceremony.

Before his death on August 26, Mr Pooley, of Allenby Crescent, had requested a military style funeral and his son is keen to fulfil his last requests.

Anyone who can help at the funeral, which takes place at 12.40pm on Wednesday, should contact Mr Fisher on 07922 953722, 01253 877770 or email michaeljosephfisher@ymail.com
