Obituary by Henry Brown OBE
"It is with very deep regret that the death of Sidney William Meddings (4 Cdo) in December last is announced. As a member of the Association's General Committee over the last few years, many comrades will recall what a tremendous worker he was in our cause.
His interest and enthusiasm in all our meetings and activities was of the highest order and he will be greatly missed. Single handedly he inaugurated the Lincoln branch and turned it into one of the most active branches of our organisation.
Deepest sympathy goes out to Elsie his widow, who at all times gave such solid support. "
