I have very fond memories of Alf and Glo, having been promoted into the Sgts Mess on the same day. That same weekend he was singing Tony Bennett songs on the mic at a function. A colourful character who will be very sadly missed.

Rest in Peace, Alf.

Alf was my SSM when I was acting Troop Sgt RHQ Troop in Hohne, he was always helpful and made me laugh on a number of occasions with his wit. One time in a particularly winters day snowing heavily he said "if it was like this tomorrow Troop Parades". Next day very much the same as the day before so I had a Troop Parade. A few minutes later I had the Squadron Runner in the Stores saying Alf wanted to see me so off I trot to get the biggest bollocking off Alf for not turning up for Squadron Parade so I repeated what he said on the previous morning to which he said "he decides when the weather bad not a Troop Corporal" The next day I had the Troop Parading outside the Squadron Block and Alf opens his window and looks out with a big grin on his face and shouts "I said when the weather is bad Troop Parades are you stupid or something?" A true SSM in every sense.

A good bloke. RIP and my condolences to Glo and his family and friends. Mac

Truly sad, knew him as a child, granted not well but I just knew of him I guess. When I joined he was just someone you just looked up to, funny and always willing to help in just about anything. RIP.

Another great Hawk gone. The Regimental Parade thins out on this side of the great divide, and gets ever bigger on the other side. RIP Alf.
