A very sad morning. Cant find the words.

Thoughts are with the family.

Count me in for the 11th Jan.

Rest in Peace Gunny.

I have only just heard about this, through the Lyneham Lepers network (thanks, Richie). My self-imposed exile from PPRuNe has left me out of the loop somewhat.

Fryboy, Stretch, Cunny and several others have already said it all: Gunny was one of the best. Always a mate, always fun, never dull. And a shit-hot operator. Lyneham was brighter for his presence. Life is so bloody unfair sometimes.

All my sympathies to Kerry and the family. Yours was a top bloke.

Evening All
Just a last minute reminder and trawl to catch stragglers - Gunny's memorial is at Lyneham Field on Tuesday 11 Jan at 1400 . If you need Station access or further details, please contact Stretch or myself on the e-mails at the start of this thread. If you are away / detached / darn root and would like to leave words in the remembrance book either e-mail me or post here - this thread will be printed and added to the book before going to Kerry and Girls.
That is all.

Gunny - A Great Bloke


I remember Dave from many moons ago as a top colleague and a great bloke who will sadly be missed.

I also remember him from time spent with him on the cricket field as a keen and able player who brought his great enthusiasm shown in his life to this game.

Unfortunately, I will be unable to attend the memorial - but will be thinking of him whilst I am in the classroom teaching my pupils.

Pass my regards to Kerry and family

Best Wishes

Lofty - Ex 47, 24, 30 & LXX Sqn's

Had the privilege of working with Gunny in the 90's, a true gentleman in all respects in whatever he was doing.

I well remember the infectious smile that he had and as others have said, his vision and drive that he had along with the ability to convey that energy to those around him was a truly magical quality.

Condolences to his family, many thanks for sharing him with us.
