It is with regret that I inform you of the death on 9 February 2018 of Mr K (Ken) Hanning who served with 3DG 61-70 then QDG 70-83 finishing his career as RSM.

At Ken's request there will be a private family funeral; the family also request that there be no condolence letters.

 

Ken is survived by his wife Renate and sons Kurt and Ralph.

Ken Hanning, his name so similar to "Ken Hannah" that a number of guys got confused, although Ken Hanning was affectionately known as the "screaming skull", whereas Ken Hannah was the quieter, better looking of the two ! Sadly Ken Hanning has passed on now, although I'm sure many looking in will remember him, especially ex "A" Sqn guys like me. He was a fluent German speaker (his wife was German), which came in VERY handy at times especially on exercise. On Amalgamation Ken went to the QDG, the other Ken to the QRIH, both carving out very successful careers at their new Regiments, proving what a loss they were to SCOTS DG. RIP Ken Hanning, I'm sure I'm not the only one who remembers you and wishes your family our sincere condolences on your loss. John (JKW)
