Death of the President of the Oldham Branch Joe Farquhar JP ex 5LF
IP: 2.98.42.189


I have been informed this morning by Mr Alan (Nobby) Noble, Oldham Branch Chairman of the death of our President Mr Joe Farquhar JP ex D Coy 5th bn the Lancashire Fusiliers. I regret having to inform all Oldham Branch members of the death of Joe by the Facebook group, but it is the easiest way to inform you all at the same time. Joe had been ill for some time and had been in a local nursing home in Oldham. Nobby and I had hoped to visit him in the next few weeks, but his death has really caught us out.

I will of course inform everyone of the funeral details, however, we will have to wait for Joe’s wishes of where he will be laid to rest in either Oldham or Scotland.

I personally feel his loss as he has always supported Alan, myself and especially the Oldham Branch where he has been the President for over 20 years. He was a fiercely loyal Lancashire Fusilier in all that time.

He was a proud supporter of Manchester City Football Club where he was a season ticket holder.

Rest in Peace Joe, Once A Fusilier, Always A Fusilier.
