I am very sorry to hear of it.

Manny was an excellent WOs' & Sgts' Mess barman in Herford.

My deepest sympathy goes to his family.

I was very fond of Manny. Even after Service life he was still pulling pints recently at The Station in Lytham, myself and a few other friends made a point of visiting him frequently. RIP

Condolences to the family.

I'm shocked at the news, worked under Manny on many occasions in the Sgts Mess in Hohne. Great guy, great grafter!

My very best wishes to Manny's family at this time.

But God, do I have a lot of fond memories of Manny. Like Kells, it was a blast working for him at any of the Sgt Mess do's, and even listening to him in the Cpls Mess. Manny had a dry wit and a great sense of timing in giving one liners.

Like everything else in life, you don't really miss something till it's gone.

Like Stevie Reds and all those Hawks before him, you Manny will be well missed.
