Bert Hughes

:( It is with great sadness that I learnt of the passing of Bert Hughes who some may know from the old NI days in Aughnacloy. Not Int Corps but a very very good Int guy. RIP

RIP also to Alex Hesketh Squad 83 parade square runner who I saw from an earlier post had passed on.
Dave 'Bert' Hughes was Parachute Regiment. Served with him at the FRU and was also in contact with him on a regular basis right up until his untimely death. A great loss, he was an excellent bloke.

I have been asked by the family to let everyone know that Dave's funeral has been postponed.

It was due to be held this Friday but, there has to be a post-mortem which will cause a delay.

When I get the rearranged date, I will let everyone know.

Sad news indeed. Does anyone have an update or a confirmed date for Bert's funeral?
It is postponed until the coroner is satisfied.

We will let you know ASP.

Dave's funeral has now been rescheduled and confirmed for next Friday 3rd July.

Anyone wanting details of where and when, PM me.

Seriously good turnout for Bert's funeral. Loads of his 3 Para mates and a lot from the FRU / JSG too.

Some good picture from Jimmyoc on a previous post.

Pax Vobiscum

RIP Bert.

This is really, really sad news. I served with him on what was his last tour before he got out. He was moved to our place up north after an infamous incident in Belfast.

Great guy.
