Veteran Andy Holder fulfilled his promise to his friend Peter Moffat, bringing his ashes to Gibraltar

Published by GBC News

It’s never too late to fulfil a promise to a friend.

Former Royal Engineer Andy Holder told his friend Peter Moffat that he would travel with him back to Gibraltar for what would have been Peter’s first visit here since 1947.

Both men were living in Burnley at the time. Andy considers Gibraltar his second home and visits frequently, but Peter hadn't returned since being posted here during World War Two.

Sadly, he passed away before travel was possible, so Andy arranged for his ashes to be scattered here.
