How sad. He was one of my SAA Instructors at Sandhurst - a magnificent guy and every inch a soldier. I can still remember him telling me that he got "Â£46 fcuking pound a week" for teaching idiots (that'd be the Officer Cadets) the GPMG!
Like all of you I was deeply saddened at Jockys death. He was a great soldier, character and friend. I had the sad honour of attending his funeral in Killyleagh. Major (Retd) John Potter gave a very fitting tribute to him which precisely summed up his life and all that he stood for. I will down many a glass of "Bush" to his memory.
In the going dowm of the Sun ...... we will remember him.
Jocky obviously settled in Co Down after his service. I'll raise a toast to his memory.
I'm pleased to hear John Potter is still with us. I don't want to hijack this thread but is he the author of A Testimony to Courage: The History of the Ulster Defence Regiment 1969-1992? I've not read it but noticed it on Amazon.
I am very sad to have to tell you that Jocky's brother Dykes ( WO1 (RSM) David Duffus MBE Q O Hldrs) passed away today. He had been ill for a while. He was RSM of the Q O Hldrs and of 3 UDR also. He was GSM Osnabruck Garrison in 1981 - 82. He attended Jocky's funeral in Killyleagh.
