Gerry McAuley HLI/RHF
It is with great sadness that we heard the news of the passing of Joseph “Gerry” McAuley. Gerry served in the 1st Battalion HLI in the late 1950s, and was in the Highland Light Infantry during the amalgamation with the Royal Scots Fusiliers, which saw the formation of the Royal Highland Fusiliers in 1959.
Gerry was a stalwart member of both the HLI and RHF Associations for many years, and was a familiar face at Armed Forces Day and Remembrance Services in Glasgow.
Gerry had been ill for some time, and passed away at home, surrounded by his loving family, on the morning of Wednesday the 16th of February 2022. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Catherine and the family at this sad time.
