JC will be sadly missed. Enjoy a long and happy retirement mate.

Let the bugle blow, let the march be played
With the forming of the troops, for your last parade
The years of wars, and the years of waiting
Obedience to orders, unhesitating
Years on home soil, and the years overseas
All woven in a web... of memories
A lifetime of service passes in review
As many good friends and exotic places too
In the waning sunlight begin to fade
With martial music of your last parade
Your last salute to the service and base
Now someone else will take your place
To the sharp young soldiers marching away
You gladly pass the orders of the day
Though uncertain what your future may hold
Still, if needed – before you grow too old-
You’ll keep your sabre sharp, your powder dry
Lest you be recalled to duty by and by
So let the bugle blow...
Fire the evening gun...
Slowly lower the colours...
Your retirement has begun

JC -- Top man you served both regiments with a loyalty that we all admire, and you are true friend to everyone
I remember us being locked up in Warminster over a weekend on a trumped up infantry charge
Bobby Broe drove a Chieftan tank at the guard house, after closing time (Obviously) on the Sat night painted with pink paint on the side ( Free John and ALI no justice for 14/20th) He jumped out and ran when it stopped at the curb edge. The guard, after picking us up laughing off the floor, had to ask you to turn it off.
Bobby owned up at closing time on the Sunday night, but the guard commander wouldn't believe him and sent him to bed. I think he was one of ours.
I remember the winter card games in the Warminster drying rooms with Chris Roache and Jumbo, the scrumpy you had brought back from the weekend, outside on the window ledge keeping cool.

And I know you as a true friend, enjoy your well earned retirement
Hope to see you soon

Best wishes ALI & Lynn

Last I heard from HHQ South is that the wheels of the Civil Service are slow to grind !

You can always still get help from Jenni in Preston.
