Andrew Harris – RIP

Andrew Harris at Twickenham with his scarf and deerstalker

Trelawny’s Army were saddened to learn of the passing of Andrew Harris one of our valued longstanding members.

Andrew. nicknamed “the Scarf” by members, was a regular at county games, was instanly recognisable sporting his long handmade Cornwall scarf and wearing his deerstalker.

Linda Harris wrote the following about her late husband. “I have so many wonderful memories of supporting the county matches. Andrew was always keen to fly the Cornish flag wherever he went – in fact his coffin was draped with a Cornish flag, and also the scarf in the photo (which I have kept!) and the inevitable deerstalker hat! I am lucky to have Trelawny’s Army friends in the village – David and Shirley Floyd. David came to Andrew’s funeral which was on 18th March at The Glynn Valley Crematorium, Bodmin. David was a great comfort to me then, and Shirley provided the funeral tea at Pillaton Village Hall afterwards. I value their friendship.”
