To coin a current 'in' phrase "SHOCK" that he has gone and "AWE" that he was such a great guy.
To achieve what he did after such a slow start in the Regiment was fantastic.
The saying "you can't hold a good man down" epitomises Scouse Woodcock. He should have retired at the same time as myself but had to serve out a further 200 odd days spent as a 'guest' of HM establishment in Colchester.
Funny, even in the most difficult of times, hard, yes and how! Loyal, kind, generous - he was them all.
Characters like him are hard to come by and difficult to replace. Yes he will be sorely missed.
Goodbye old friend.
A very saddened Arnie
