So sad to hear of my old Sqn Ldr's passing ;  a really nice guy was Major John Scrivener, small in stature but big in heart - I was his SQMS in Sennelager for quite some time, & we got on famously. He was initially selected as the "Boss" of the Close Observation Troop (C.O.T) for the Belfast tour and opted for me to be his WO2  2 i/c - whilst I was away on my sneaky beaky course for this new job, the "powers that be" decided a Major was too high a rank for the role & replaced him with a Captain (albeit a very good one). I know "Scriv" was bitterly disappointed with this decision but in typical fashion took it on the chin & soldiered on. He will be sadly missed by many - RIP "Boss".  John (JKW)
