Ronnie sadly passed away early this morning. Any Carabiniers who never served in SCOTS DG will not know of Ronnie, he was an ex Grey and something of a character. No more than 5’ tall, give or take an inch, Ronnie was an institution and for many years he was Officers’ Mess Sgt Major. He had a wry sense of humour and I well remember almost peeing myself with laughter at his story of how he was RTU’d from his B Vehicle D&M Instructor’s course because even with wooden blocks he couldnt operate the pedals safely......or see over the steering wheel I suspect. Ronnie was fanatically loyal to the Regiment. My condolences to Rosemary, his lovely wife and his family. R.I.P. Ronnie.

You've summed it all up eloquently David - Wee Ronnie was infamous throughout the Regiment, revered by the officers he served so well, and always had a smile on his face along with an infectious chuckle. RIP old comrade, show 'em how it's really done up there ! John (JKW)
