I served with Brian ( topsy) in training in 582 squad
Inkerman barracks. Both being Londoners we were great pals, we helped each other through training.
He was a lovely lad, and it fills me with sorrow
that he died aged 20 years. Rest in peace old friend.

For two years we were brothers in arms. Born on the same day, the same year, and almost the same hour.
We began our Army career together, we trained together, We got drunk together.
We arrived in Cyprus together, where "Topsy" worked in the armoury. We laughed and had "Dear John" letters at almost the same time. We shared everything together.
I have now lost the 3rd member of our triangle. Taf Stevens died last year. I hope you two are creating havoc TOGETHER.
Miss you lots. TOPSY and TAF.............RIP
