Thank you all for your kind words, my sister sylvia and i are touched to see names we recognize. i have learned from the funeral directors today that as dad was a life member of the British legion he will have a flag draped over his coffin and a standard bearer at the ceremony.

I have only just heard from Diane of Bob Royce's sad death.  When I took command of 16 Sqn in Jan 85 Bob was A Tp SSgt and when he was posted away to Belize on promotion I had no hesitataion in requesting that Bob should come back to the Sqn as SSM when the late Paul Manning was posted.  This duly happened and Bob became a great friend and tremendous support, so much so that when I took command of 43 Sqn in Shorncliffe and Bob had been commissioned I asked if he would come as my 2IC, unfortunately for me he was enjoying himself too much commanding his MCTG in Celle but we remained in touch and met occasionally at the reunion.  He was a very fine man and a very fine soldier who will be greatly missed.  I have sent Dannie's and my deepest sympathy to Diane and Kevin.

Just heard the sad news about Bob from Swinny,and I have just seen the news about Butch. Bob and I shared a set of golf clubs sold to us by Dave Tuplin, he had the even numbers and I had the odd numbers, and we played football together. Both were good men and will be sadly missed, my condolences to both families.
