Have a great Christmas and a happy healthy New Year to you all.
I think we all should toast and think of all our comrades that have left us for the great ‘Muster Parade’ in Valhalla, the latest being Slim Sivers. Mike Sinden has described him as a ‘Gentle Giant’ which is very true. I myself knew him as a ‘Social Worker’ amongst us. Looking after all that went to him with their problems. One anecdote I have about him that really impressed me was in Malta I used to see him wandering through St Andrews with his big brown sack thrown over his shoulder. I said to him, rather cheekily “Hello Slim have I got any mail today “ he answered “ Yes, one, it’s from your Mum, it’s in your Company office” I thanked him, he was right, how had he remembered that? My Mother only put Name, 1 Royal Sussex and the BFPO number. He must have know everyone in the Regiment. Yes he was a special person.
So let’s all take just a minute to think of all that have been lost to us.
I spoke to Bob Chin today and he wishes to be remembered to all of his friends.
