would also like to add my condolences to Jimmy's family, I had the great pleasure of serving with him in fally, he had really good sense of humour and was 100% fair with everyone never forget him as a Sgt going to Antwerp to pick up the new Commanders and him returning as a tom to a lance jack, I was looking forward to catching up with him at the reunion, he will be sadly missed, RIP
