Since 'finding' Noah's Arc a few years ago Max has become a friend with whom Linda and I have established a close friendship, meeting regularly. For a gentleman of over 90 years it is remarkable that he has accompanied us on our visit to Medicina in 2015 and attended reunions at Blackpool and at Barton Grange.
Max joined the Regiment in Egypt in 1943 and travelled through Italy including taking part in the battle at Medicina where Major Mann was his Squadron Leader (Rory Mann's dad) and his Commanding Officer was Lt Col 'Freckles' Tilney (Godfrey Tilney's dad). A fluent Italian speaker he was 'captured' by the Int Corps when he arrived at Trieste. He was one of the oldest surviving members of our Regiment.
I will miss him and his stories greatly.
RIP my old friend.
