I'm sorry to pass on the news that Tom died on 21st February after an illness.

You're meant to dislike Sergeant Majors I believe, but with Tom that wouldn't apply. A lovely man.


The family have requested a private funeral.

Remember Tom from Paderborne. He and Bill Bingham were good mates of my old man Weedy and came to visit him when he was ill towards the end. My condolences to his family and friends. RIP Tom.

Cheers Ron

Can't ever remember being in fear of Tom as a senior NCO. The man was too nice. R.I.P. Tom and sincere condolences to the family.
