I've just received a phone call off 'Reg (Scouse) Williams' Grand daughter informing me that he's sadly passed away. I served with Reg in Senne in the mid and late 60s. Good days!

His funeral is at Southport Crematorium at 1-20 pm on Monday 16th September.

 Southport Crematorium is situated just outside Southport in Scarisbrick on the A570 Southport to Ormskirk Road. All the best old pal. R.I.P.

Brian Robinson was one of the best blokes you could ever meet. I remember him as a guy who got on with the work in hand, and was always ready to give his best to anyone who needed help. Always laughing and joking.  A bladdy great bloke and will be sadly missed by all who knew him. I send my condolences to his family.

I've only joined this site today, reading through the name of the people I knew at my time in 19 Sqn. Is very sad. Taff Silk was my first No.1 and a No.1 bloke, there are so many names so very sad and some so young' but the memories and the good times will never die, rest in peace all you good guys, Dan

I approve each member to the site, most times I get it right but the odd one slips through the net, if you feel that your application…
