He cannot stop himself...luckily there is no need to rely on that!
SS isn't worth the effort!
SS: please just go away.

Back on thread.

I hope that George McGilvary recovers, and if not that he passes smoothly and thoughts are with his friends and family. 2nd were a great Regiment, mainly because of the family/team they had.
I had an email today saying that George McGilvery passed away peacefully this morning, after a short but aggressive illness, bravely fought. For the last 17 Years he had been one of the senior administrators for the RBL.

If you want to send condolences to his wife send a PM and I will send you the address.

sniffle snaffle. I don't know who you are but I would ask you to delete or edit your post.

"Ask not for whom the bell tolls - it tolls for thee!"
I never knew George, but as he was a gunner he was all right in my books.
Sincere Condolences to all who knew George in 2nd Fld and to his family.

RIP whoever you were.


Lifted from Commando Gunner website and posted by 'George' Martin.

George McGilvery was a clerk in 95 Cdo Lt Regt before its disbandment.
George was just another incredible one of those pen pushers from the regiment who rose to high rank as an artillery clerk and I must say at our annual reunions he truly demonstrated he was still a commando gunner at heart.
I particularly enjoyed his early morning and sometimes all-night company at those bashes, where there were always more green beret personnel still socialising than from the remainder of the Royal Artillery. Warrant Officer George was just 62. May he RIP.


George's funeral will take place on the 23rd November at 1530hrs at Vintners Park, Crematorium in Maidstone which is not large. Family have asked that there be only family flowers on the day but suggest that if people would like to make a donation that it be sent to The Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal or to the Heart of Kent Hospice who looked after George in his final days.
