George Shute

July 14, 2017

I was Facebook last night and there was an article about the funeral of an comrade of ours George Shute  ,one of the stalwarts of the D&M wing of the Regiment back in the 60's . This took place in George's home of Fiji earlier this month. There is coincidence,yesterday morning there was Saladin armoured car on FB and had posted that my instructor was George when we in the Dale in 67/68 conversation from Centurion to Saladin,then the obituary was posted last night . Remembering George always had a smile on his face and was a great instructor,George was 79 when He passed ,another great Carabiner joined the last parade . R I P

I remember George well, great man, immensely strong, always smiling, ever ready to help out anyone who needed it. Another sad loss.

We were both Tp Sgts in "C" Sqn in BAOR , a great guy, a fund of D&M knowledge and a really hard worker, who had a ready chuckle irrespective of the problem / task ahead. Liked & respected by everyone, George was a credit to not only the Regiment, but his beloved Fiji. For those that don't know George, he transferred from 5RTR on their Amalgamation,  to the Greys, and was later further Amalgamated to SCOTS DG . Rest In Peace George, it was our pleasure t have served with you. John (JKW)

I never met George, but I know that all Fijians in the British Army were and still are all stalwarts, friendly and eager to do the job in hand with a smile and a strong handshake. What would the world be like without such men and women from Fiji? Rest in peace, your duty done.......
