My sincere condolences to you and your family, EXBQMS.

Rest In Peace, Pat.

Better by far you should forget and smile,
Than that you should remember and be sad.

I've only just joined this site and browsing. If memory serves Pat was in C Bty at the time I was in J (70s). A good bloke as I recall. Condolences

Sorry to read the news about Pat, I lost sight of the thread after going off on holiday last year...

I remember Pat from my early days in the Army when I joined C Bty, 3 RHA out in Hong Kong.

As I could do joined-up writing, I was sent to the Survey Stores, where Pat took me under his wing and taught me how to use a Director and set up the CP, before I took up Regtl Survey.

Lots of happy memories of a top bloke. Please pass my condolences to the family.

Sadly I missed this thread first time round.
Pat was in the same intake as me in boys service but we ended up in differant troops but did participate in the same training and sports together in which he excelled, especially football.
He was always full of life and and with a wicked sense of humour which I can still recall now after some forty years. I remember the day we both mustered and I saw him with Monica from the NAFFI and thought "I wished I done that!" Pat of course had the balls to pull the girl the rest of us just dreamed of asking out.
I think the last time I saw Pat was at RAGTE in Hohne when we both nodded a look of recognision at each other.
Truly a top bloke who will be missed by many.
