    Lt Col (AR) Pat Holahan (rtd) aka Vickers

    It has been reported on RDFRA's Facebook page that Lt Col Pat Holahan has died. Pat was a former member of 21 Bn and the first reserve EO of 2 Bde. He had been suffering from cancer for a long time. Pat would be known to us here on IMO as Vickers, the owner of the site. To me he was a great officer, an inspirational leader and a good friend.

    Details of the funeral arrangements are not yet known, we will post them when they are published.

    On tough courses in years past Pat/Vickers tended to turn up to observe and cheer me up with a quiet word. I had huge respect for him , a perfect gentleman .

    As the founder and owner of IMO he will be a huge loss to us here as well

    RIP
