    Shay was a true Gentleman and an excellent N.C.O. and Instructor it was an honour to have served in the 11 th Fld Signals Coy and 62 CIS with Shay. His loss will be be very hard for us his comrades to bear as Shay was a huge driving force within the unit . The Officers, N.C.O.,s and Signallers extend their deepest sympathy to Shays family at this sad time.

    Shay, Shaggy, was a friend and comrade.

    He will be missed by many members of Tpt coy 62 RLSB.

    Some of you know of the "book" that kept the record of borrowings and pay back. I was a bit of fun between friends. No one could have suspected that the last entry would have been made by now.

    I am not sure but I think Shaggy was only 44.

    RIP

    PS thanks for heads up on change of arrangements.

    Shay, my friend and comrade, even though I had the great honour of carrying your remains to their final resting place, I still expected you to arrive late on Tuesday night. You did not and you were not in the mess for our usual natter on some technical point or other, a whinge over grat payments or whatever. Go well my friend to the After World where I am sure the other warriors will make a place for you in their mess. Fix that comms link that has been down for so long and when you are ready open up in CW on channel 1, cipher key 3, transec group 5 and if successful we can ZBI for another shittalk. 11 Sigs and 62CIS have never has such a great loss.
