Drac
You were my Troop Sergeant in SHQ Troop when I joined the Regiment and I will always remember Tracker Walsh and myself going to your House for Sunday dinner fond memories, so it is very sad to hear you have been told you have this terrible illness.
Our thoughts to you and your Family.
Alan and Isabel.

Brian what can I say, I thought you would go on forever. I am sure that Denny and your family are strong enough to pass through this strongly, and will receive all the help that the committee can give.

Drac you were my QM(T) for my first couple of years in the regt (1989/91).
When you phoned down ( from your office ), I used to hold the phone away from my head " Right Laaaaa .............................. and simply listen to your instructions via your voice booming and echoing down the stair case .
And Denny was always such a lovely woman ( sincere and caring ).
You always stunned us when when you could rhyme off so many part numbers straight from the top of your head !! What a GREAT guy !
Sir, you embody the true greatness of what it means to be a true Hussar.
So much respect for you.
Your family's loss shall also be the regiment's loss.
All the very best to yourself and your family.

Hussar !
