    I am saddened to report the death, last week, of Iain Kinnear.

    During a long and interesting career Iain served in field regiments including a posting as RSM, he also served in 5 AB Brigade and at various roles in Hereford rising from Sapper to Lt. Col.

    After retirement Iain worked as the tactical fuel consultant for the United Nations for deployed operations as well as a business advisor to UK and European companies on military fuel systems as well as running his small farm.

    In his retirement he was a modest, cheerful and very homorous gentlemen and will be sadly missed by his many friends amongst which I am honoured to count myself a minor friend.

    He is survived byvhis wife, Dorothy, and two daughters.
     
  2. This fine (slightly mad) man was very influential in my career within the Royal Engineers. He was a true proffesional in the best sense and will be sadly missed. If only we could have all risen to his professionalism and standard.
