Deepest sympathy to all Dibb's family and all who had the the fortune to have known him.

Dibbs was on a rear party at Fally and named the bar The Winchester after the drinking den on the program Minder staring Arthur Daily, need I say more, much Asbach Brandy consumed and a the lovable rouge of 16 Tk Tp Tr Sqn. was born and continued to entertain at 617 in Hamm when posted there. I left the army from there and lost contact. RIP Dibbs you will be sadly missed. Don Reynolds

Gutted to hear abouts Dibbs, only just a got the news....a true gentleman and great character who will be sadly missed.
I first met Dibbsy on my JMQC Course in Senne, named as DB. He didn't know much about me during the first week of the course nor me anything about him, however due to a shortage of Deutch Marks in my wallet, I needed to get to the bank as it was fast approaching the weekend. Without hesitation he just said ' how much do you want? I'll lend you it.....and he did!'
I've never forgotten the kind offer from the Samaratan called DB - and I told him the story when I went to the re union the other year and bought him a drink to say thank you.

Rest in peace Dibbsy....an amazing guy and legend.

At our last reunion I made a point of saying Goodbye to Neil(until we meet again). Dibbsy has to be commended for turning up. It was fairly clear to see Neil did not have long left on this earth. Isn't that just typical of him eh! A Thank You to Neil's brother and wife for attending with Neil. Dibbsy you were a star down here and I'm sure just as big a one up there. 

Very quickly..... In 2009 I was attending a force briefing (Gwent Police) in Cwmbran South Wales. A joint operation with police, trading standards, benefits, border agency, customs, DVLA. In walks the DVLA -"DIBBS".  He spotted me across the briefing room. Dibbsy shouted. "Eh Marsy How you doing, wheres the f****** bar then?". We had a good laugh and chat. When the briefing was over the local commander called me over and said, " Who the hell was that?" All that was said was "Sir that was DIBBSY".

Yes Dibbs sadly lost his battle to cancer last night. He passed away peacefully at home with his Mother and two brothers Paul and Steve. As soon as details of his final arrangements have been made by his family, I shall put something up on here as well as FB. RIP Dibbs, God speed
