Just unbelievable. Absolutely gutted at the news - Si was great bloke, larger than life in more respects than one! Awful news but more so at this time of year. RIP Si and Steve, our thoughts are with their families.
And so the numbers of those who who go VMC on top increase yet again. Si was a great fella and lived life to the max, he will be very sadly missed by many, none more so than his family. God speed old mate and rest peacefully, you'll never be forgotten.
Sorry guys I've just got back from leave and flicked on to my fave forum to be greeted with the tragic news about Si....How, When, Where? I cant belive we have lost another good mate.....Gutted....I dont know what too say...................RIP Si.
What a great loss and one that brought a tear to my eye. Si was the ultimate top bloke, a gentle giant and larger than life character. Known Si for some years as we tended to follow one another around the Corps and spent many hours in SAMA together as well as Germany. Popped into North Wales every now and again, just to ensure he hadn't lost any weight, although suprisingly on one visit he was called on a shout and offered me his lunch, never ceased to surprise and always generous. Sad news indeed and I would like to offer my condolences to his family and also his partner, why is it always lifes good blokes? God speed mate!
To all those who knew my brother Si (Simon) and have left many heartfelt messages and your memories, I am enternally grateful, for even though he had moved into civvy street, he had treasured memories of all those he came into contact with and shared many a cheerful anecdotes of his time served.He was larger than life and wore a smile as though painted on, he never forgot nor will we forget.....
