I never realised this page existed, and I would like to place a over belated entry into this prestigious wall on the passing of my dearest Pal, Matthew Smyth Manily Barnes (Barney) who died tragically on drag with me on 21st April 1981.

Gone, never forgotten Pal.

I am stunned to hear of the passing of Bob Royce, we knew each other all through our Army days and Bob was best man at my wedding. My deepest condolences to Diane and Kevin, does any one have any contact details for Diane.

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.

Rest in peace dad, Keith Davis passed away on Thursday 26th April 2012.

Comment by David Pleasants on April 28, 2012 at 23:23

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.

Rhona and Tracy Large would like to thank everyone for their very kind messages on the passing of Butch. I know that these are a huge comfort to them at this very sad time.
