Major Willie Shaw MBE

Major Willie Shaw MBE

It is with great sadness that we report the passing away on the 24th January 2018 of Major Willie Shaw MBE RSF/RHF after a short illness. Willie was a long serving regular soldier, serving in the Royal Scots Fusiliers, then after the amalgamation of the RSF with the HLI in 1959, in the Royal Highland Fusiliers. Latterly he was at RHQ in Glasgow, where many of our members looked forward to his hilarious anecdotes at the regular members lunches. Many of our members also have very fond memories of numerous coach trips run by Willie to old stomping grounds in Germany. He was a true character, and universally admired and respected, and he will be sorely missed.

All of the RHF family of Regimental Association Standards were present for Willie’s funeral service at Masonhill Crematorium, Ayr, on Friday 9 February 2018.
A fond farewell to a fine soldier and a good friend
