    Bad CO - I wonder if we could change the title to something like 'Lt Col (Ret'd) Malcolm Mckinlay, Sad News', cos there will be a bunch of people who will know him by name, but not as 'MS Rep' here on ARRSE.

    Malcolm was a good guy, and one I've known for almost 30 years. He was sometimes full of sh!t, but his heart was always, always where it should have been. While he'd take the p!ss out of anyone, he tended to think the best of most. I'm really saddened by this news.


    Edited to add - Thanks for changing the thread title, Bad CO. I'll chase up funeral details over the next few days and, for anyone who wants to be kept informed, please pm me.

    Malcolm was the sort of colleague you would want to be able to ask for in a team. He gave his Corps and the Army a great deal. Very sad news. RIP.

    I knew Maicolm when we both served at Warminster. Not a Signals chaps myself - but do remember him and he did look after me in an MS sort of way.

    RIP to a bit of a character!
