I have just heard that Bob French passed away this morning, his 72nd birthday.  Bob was the Pay Sgt at Senne in the late 70s  and a true friend.  Our thoughts are with his wife Liz and Michelle and Kevin.

HI all, It is with great sadness that I bring the news of Craig Oliver's passing on 14 Mar 14 - age 48. Craig was REME attached at 617 TTS from 86-89 before being posted to Dortmund. He left the Army on phase 3 redundancy in 95.

He is survived by his daughter Tanya.

The service is at Mortonhall Crematorium, Edinburgh for close friends and family.

If anyone who knew Craig wishes to leave any message I'll pass it on to his family.

Haven't been on the web site for a long time. And just read about the sad passing of Shonker ! I served with him and Blackie Widdows at Jnr Ldrs Taunton. Had some great times back then and again at X1X. He took my place on a posting to Irland back in the early 70s so that I didn't have to cancel my wedding. God Bless you Mate!

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.
