Just A Thought……..

February 22, 2018

I reckon the fact the Obituaries & Condolences thread is situated below the usual "General" and " Rant" ones mean that often newer entries are missed, even by the regulars who look in. Why else would no one comment on the recent passing of two well known former Carabiniers, both of whom were very well known in the Regiment, certainly from Detmold days ?  It might be an idea to post such information in basic "look here" mode, on the "General" forum as a reminder to look further down the list - I shall demonstrate just what I mean........     John (JKW)

I’ve been waiting to see if anyone else responded. Your idea is sound, in theory, but I fear it isn’t just the positioning of the ‘obits’ page that is the main contributory factor to the lack of input John. I never really knew Ken or Bunny albeit I met Bunny briefly at a couple of OCA weekends after he left, hence my lack of input. I also find it a bit sad that so few people find the time to offer a few words in rememberance of long serving former comrades. The fact of the matter is exactly as I stated in my last post on this subject. Sadly!

It would seem you're right David, because since my "reminder" & heads up to hopefully instigate at least a semblance of a response, absolutely none have been forthcoming - so sad to think the passing of guys served with goes by without any acknowledgement from former comrades in arms. A simple "RIP" would suffice, no big spiel needed, just "RIP & condolences to friends & family" is all that's needed - I would have thought at least one of member of  the NW Branch Committee would have an input too.   John (JKW)

Hmm, I started to answer Charlie’s quite helpful suggestion but somehow words fail me.
