  • Sgt Frank Kelly

    Today Sgt Kelly was laid to rest.

    Frank served for 42 yearsmost of which was with the 11th Fld S&T.

    There are few that had contact with the unit that did not know him and many who had no contact knew him by reputation. There are many stories to be told in many barracks around the country about him but they all tel of him as a real soldier. Loyal to the men and to the service..

    In recent years he fell to ill health and was kept away from unit functions.

    RIP

    42 years service

    lay your head down comrade- you have earned your rest

    RIP
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere***
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

                    I went into an Italian restaurant and ordered dessert and they gave me tiramisu and a blindfolded horse and I said No, I said mask a pony (mascarpone)

                        And indeed I' ve been recently wiping my eyes laughing at some of those
                        stories.

                        May he rest in peace - R.I.P
