I remember Alan D well, from his coaching of our footy team - always enthusiastic, drove us hard, but it produced the goods for we had a great team who were fit as a fiddle. A really decent guy, could relate to anyone and always seemed to have a twinkle in his eye. With regards his arrival, I too cannot recall when, but think he was posted in when Gil Neill left for pastures new. Rest In Peace Alan, you can sit astride that "wooden horse in the sky" with pride.

I too remember Alan, I first met him in the gym, due to various jobs I had done before enlisting, I had a tremendously strong pair of legs, on the circuit training we used to do the military squats whilst having a barbell of 112 lbs across your shoulders, we had a little competition as to how many we could do, Alan stopped at 33, I went to stop at 35 he made me carry on until 49, then let me stop, saying quietly to me, you should have stopped at 30 and not been a clever clogs. I could only smile, another lesson learned on man management. A really great guy. RIP  to you ALAN.
