    His son Paul was an outstanding NCO, an absolute legend in battalion. In fact the other week, it was two years ago that he was KIA.

  7. R.I.P Sad news indeed.
  8. How terrible for the family to lose both of them so close together.

    St Peter had better open them gates sharpish unless he wants the hinges off with a Remington 870.

    God bless.

    RIP John .

    They mingle not with their laughing comrades again
    They sit no more at familiar tables of home
    They have no lot in our labour of the day-time
    They sleep beyond Scotland's foam.
