I was hoping to get people to notice that this news came from the BBC, a.n. other piece of bullshit from a so called respectable company.

It is with great sadness I have to report the passing of POCK Nobby Brian Clark last Tuesday.
Nobby served on HMS Repulse stbd crew from build to late 70 s he was a good pal and mentor will be sorely missed.
His funeral will be held on Tuesday 2nd July 15:15 at West Wiltshire Crematorium Frome Somerset.
His Daughter in Law Julia Baker has asked to an open invite to any ex colleagues to attend the funeral or any dits that can be added to the service. Nobby was not on Facebook so not a member of any groups.
Julia can be contacted on [email protected]

It is with heavy hearts that we must announce the death of Adamas, The Life Guards Drum Horse who came into service for Her Majesty The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee in 2012. His name is Greek for diamond but his temperament was gentle and he had a cheeky, fun side too which made him a Household Cavalry favourite. He developed an infection in the joint in one of his feet which required repeated intensive treatment. No expense was spared and he was treated by some of the most highly qualified surgeons in the UK.
Adamas underwent emergency orthopaedic surgery in March and seemed to be recovering well at the Defence Animal Training Regiment. Sadly, as is often the case with these conditions, he developed complications and despite the most incredible efforts of the referral surgeons and hospital staff, he could not be saved. A brave soldier to the end, he was peacefully and gently put to sleep in Melton Mowbray on Wednesday 5th June.

I used to get good Stilton cheese in Melton Mowbray. You could buy "mis-shapes" for about a quarter of the price of the "proper" stuff.

When I was an Instructor at Raleigh 86 to 88 - if you were 'naughty' as mess dinner you were fined a bottle of port - then at the end of each term mess members were invited to down said port and the mess itself provided a massive wheel of Stilton with the centre scooped out and filled with some of the port and the rest drunk

Happy, Happy days..............................................sigh
