Death of John Sands, Bobby’s father



John Sands carrying his son’s coffin. His MP son’s coffin.

Terrible thing for a parent to live on an on and on to the age of 91  for over 30 years after his son’s death

May you rest in peace John. Condolences to all the family.

In a magazine article shortly after the IRA hunger strike of the early 1980s, John , was quoted as saying the whole family felt betrayed.

I was a war veteran of the British Navy at Anzio and the South Pacific. The freedom I fought for didn’t help us,” he said.


RIP John and Bobby
