  • CQMS Danny Kenny

    Today we said goodbye to Danny Kenny who, as described by Rev Fr Brendan Madden CF, was "a man who had many good pals, mainly because he was a good friend to many himself." Danny came to 2 Inf Bn nearly 8 years ago from 5 Inf Bn, and was a rarity in that he was a genuinely popular guy. Danny will be sorely missed by many, as evidenced by the huge turnout of family and friends at his funeral, including members of not just his own unit, but also the Fifth, where he is obviously also fondly remembered despite not having served there for nearly a decade. As Fr Madden also said, although Danny joked that he might like to pass away near a bank holiday to get the lads caught for his funeral on a bank holiday weekend, we were not there today because we had to be, but because we wanted to be.
    Danny passed away on the morning of Christmas Day, having been hospitalised on the evening of 21 December. He was 53 years of age.
    Requiescat In Pacem.

        "Let us be clear about three facts. First, all battles and all wars are won in the end by the infantryman. Secondly, the infantryman always bears the brunt. His casualties are heavier, he suffers greater extremes of discomfort and fatigue than the other arms. Thirdly, the art of the infantryman is less stereotyped and far harder to acquire in modern war than that of any other arm." ------- Field Marshall Wavell, April 1945.
