His Royal Highness, The Prince Philip RIP

Cardinal Nichols prays for the repose of the soul of Prince Philip

At this moment of sadness and loss I pray for the repose of the soul of Prince Philip, Her Majesty the Queen’s faithful and loyal husband. I pray for the Queen and all of the Royal Family.
How much we will miss Prince Philip’s presence and character, so full of life and vigour. He has been an example of steadfast loyalty and duty cheerfully given.
May he rest in peace.
+ Vincent Nichols Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster

Soldier from the Great War - John Durr
w1.jpg .

John's records note that he died rather than died of wounds which would indicate death from disease or other causes. The 10th Battalion had recently helped train newly arrived American troops and John may have been exposed to influenza at that time. It appears that John was one of the first victims from Stockport in the flu pandemic of 1918-9.
In these times please also remember the many people who died in this previous pandemic.
