Harry Ballantyne landed in Normandy with the 1st Bn HLI in 1944. He was twice wounded and returned to action. Harry led a very full and active life, celebrating his 90th birthday in February this year. He passed away peacefully at home on the 3rd August 2015 with his Wife Jeannie and Daughter Janice by his side. The family were very appreciative of the guard of honour at Daldowie Crematorium on Saturday 8th August provided by our Secretary/Standard Bearer Jim Devine and Committee Member Jimmy Urquhart, ably supported by members of the Royal Highland Fusiliers Association.
Gone but not forgotten
