I'm surprised it hasn't been posted yet.

For those who knew him, we will remember his great smile, his sense of humour, his stories about his career as a pilot and officer, his love of single malt and the ladies!  ;D

One of the few Honourary Colonels that were given the right to hold the position beyond the normal 2 year term, he became a fixture in the field for 427 SOAS during exercises.  In fact, I recall him always being more than happy to stay in the field for the full experience.  He was a tough man, taking a hit during someone's run for the gavel at a flight suit mess dinner.  He got right back up and asked for a drink while the CO looked completely horrified!  :nod:

Rest in peace my friend.  You meant so much to so many and will be missed.
