I served on the Provost of 3DG with Colin in Herford, he was a great guy, really good fun and a good mate to have. he could keep people amused for ages with his protracted stories. His son served in SCOTS DG, I think he joined us in Tidworth. I am truly sad at his passing and I send my condolences to his family. RIP.
