    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.

    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 )

    You and me both, something we can agree on. :eek:)
  11. I'm sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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! ;-)
  15. 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.
