I left 3 Sqn in 72 so our paths may have crossed somewhere in our unique world of Tank Transporting.My condolences to his family and friends at this sad time.RIP Steve.

With a heavy heart I am sorry to report the passing of Steve Pierce.  Taken far too soon on the 5th August, 2015 following a 3-1/2 year courageous battle.

Funeral service was held on the 13th August at the North Devon Crematorium.

Steve was a member of  3 Sqn in Senne  in the mid 1970’s, an  influential sqn footballer and later day endurance runner  who will be sorely missed.

Sincere condolences to Claire and family.

Hiya Phil, I remember him, Guards type moustache, he always seemed a nice bloke. Didn't Jim Brown or Jim Case follow him as SSM?

Hope all is well,

Just read in the Waggon Master of the passing of Maj PD Quinn MBE. Anyone at Ranby in the mid 60s will remember him as the SSM. Transferred in from the guards I seem to remember. rumour had it he would sit in the barbers chair and demand "same as yesterday".  I came across him in 1980 when he was QM of 10 UDR  and as MD at HQNI I was sent to do his annual MT inspection. Totally different person without his pace stick and a nice guy, remember having a long chat with him about some of the characters that blessed 19 Sqn in those days.

Very sad to hear Bob has passed on, I spoke with him a couple of times on Skype, he always came across as a happy go lucky sort of guy,. A really good guy. Our condolences to his family.

Comment by Mick Gill on February 6, 2015 at 16:18

So very sad to here of Bob Morris passing. I knew him from my days in Sennerlager 58-61, we were both DT,and Antar drivers, section commanders and B1 specialists as were many others, but his knowledge of the job put him amoungst the best. He will be remembered through his photographs and comments and for me the only time I met him after Senne was the reunion at Stoke we both attended and the few times we spoke on Skype. Condolences to his vast family and the many friends that knew him on this site, from one big wheeler to anoughter, cheers, Mate.
