Are you sure about those dates? 5 years to half colonel seems rather rapid.

Col Maurice was a transferree. We have a few in the Corps don't y'know.

Beat me too it Minnesota_Viking. Yes transferred in and was an excellent OC, described by some as 'a proper officer.'
I would like to thank everybody who knew my Father (Mr H M Maisey, or Lt Col, as he was then) for their kind support. He had an awesome send off, and the Church was packed with friends and family. Many of the friends had known him from the early days. He had such a full life, none of which he EVER regretted. In a letter he wrote, that we found after his death, he quoted 'He would do it all again, and change nothing'

Check out the poem by Linda Ellis, called 'The Dash' It was almost as if it was written for him.

Proud to be Maurices Daughter, and hope I am just a little like him. :D
