RIP Cpl Cook

#1
My old Basic Training fullscrew died earlier this year. Cpl Cook was a good bloke.
Old school, yet approachable if it was important.
He wrote my reports on me when I was a recruit and I was only reading them in my P file the other day-which was the last time I thought about him, among other things.
He was in the obituaries in this months Crafty.
I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for the likes of him.
RIP.

Errrrm?

Did you not see the RIP WO2 Cook thread that has been here for a couple of months? (Sat only on page 2 as I type)

Didn't know him but it was a fantastic obituary. Particularly emotional the fact that he got into his mess dress for a night in the Corps mess just before his passing.

Arte et Marte

I remember when he sat all us crows in a hollow square one night in front of the telly and let us watch a video. "This film is why I joined the army and became RS, the ONLY member of the training team to be 100% RS from joining up mind!" He then put full metal jacket on and sat watching the opening Paris Island scenes with us with a grin on his face. When it got to the Vietnam bits, he turned it off and creased the **** out of usd us for not doing our kit. Legend!

Cookie was an instructor on my JMC at 17 Sport & Pastime in June 91. It was the only time I ever met him he was a good bloke. RIP
