It is with great sadness that I must report the death of John Young, ex WO2 Leeds Rifles, and for many years after, the Mess C/Sgt of 1 Yorks. Several generations of young officers were picked up and put back on the straight narrow by this remarkable man. Never rude, never sarcastic, always amusing and generally always right. A good friend to all who knew him, and a man who respected by all. I shall have a few beers in his memory tonight.
