Thank you to whom ever it was that wrote that wonderful letter to my mum. She was deeply grateful that someone still remembers him and cared enough to write.

My dad died back in 1971 while I was three thousand miles away, and I miss him every single day of my life.

Condolences, however belated, are still heartfelt, Sir.

You have mine.

It looks like a great day on Gibraltar for him.

My sympathies. I can't begin to know how this makes you feel.

My Old Man is Ex REME as well but I am lucky enough to still have him with me.

Condolences.

and pause for thought, I think I'll ring the old boy in the morning. He was a better soldier than I ever was, ( mind you not half as good as my little brother who redefines the word ally, they were always having pissing contests but I think the old boy now has the good grace to accept he's been bested )

I would be lost without my Dad, pulled my balls out of the vice more times than I can possibly remember.

You have my condolences.

You and me both, something we can agree on. :eek:)

My condolences for your loss. I only wish I had a relationship with my father. Despite my attempts to hold out an olive branch to him he refuses to speak to me.

My condolences to you mate.
I lost my dad nearly a year ago now to a heart attack. He was an ex-RAOC, drill pig.
I miss him every day. Its especially bad this weekend as the Ryder Cup is on. He loved golf and he'd watch every minute of the Ryder Cup.

Sincere condolences... My Dad died in 1981. I served in the same regiment, (as did my Granddad and Great Granddad), in its amalgamed form. I miss him still and strive to be as good of a man as he was but know I fail at times so use his methods and re-group... Never forgotten old mate! ;-)

Dusty? The Sahara is wetter than in here.

Quite a few seem to think we don.t measure up to our old man; when he served in the RRA he could be a complete bastard at times but after he.d been out for a few years he wasn.t a bad bloke at all. Never was the soldier he was though, nor the man.

Lost him 5 years ago to cancer but never forgotten.

RIP

Condolences,
Lost my old dad in 97, ex navy could drink like a fish and had a heart of gold. Can see him standing at the bar now, pint in hand.

RIP.

Well, it's not every day that you son tells you he's had his cóck cut off and started buying his clothes from Bon Marché is it?

Sorry to hear of the death of your Dad.I served with Geordie for 3 years at 4 field regt lad REME Aldershot he was my boss what a top bloke.It was my first REME posting after transfering from the RA. I was 88 battery gun fitter and he taught me all he knew, i dont think i would be the engineer iam today without your dads help.I dont know if you remember but i was the guy who took a puppy of you and kept it in the block but we had to give it back because it kept shitting in everybodys bed space. i even came to your house a couple of times and have seen you as a young kid,how the years pass and remember your mum is she called moira? as i said before good times
good memories.RIP Geordie. Arte et Marte
