Chris Woodward: Bam Bam! I just wanted to
post my sadness in the death of one of the Queens Own’s best officers!
He was my troop leader in BATUS 1979. All the troop loved
him because we could relate and communicate with him, I guess that was his
downfall as an officer, he was too popular amongst his men. I would like to
share a scenario with you all at a rifle range, somewhere near Soltau. We were
required to test our smg’s on live firing. He grabbed his, told us how crap they
were, loaded it up, flicked off the safety catch and bounced the butt on the
ground and held it as rounds flew out the barrel up to the stars. He then
ordered us to load up, full automatic and fill the targets and sandbank! This
German range guy turned up in a terrible state and asked us what we were doing!
In a huge cloud of sand dust He just palmed him off and said, I don’t believe I
have to explain anything to you!
Goodnight and God Bless Bam Bam, One of the best!

Annemarie Timmins: I know
this is a bit of a long shot but my Grandad, is my absolute hero and would do
anything for anyone and I would never have got where I am today without the
support of my grandparents. My Grandad turns 82 this year and often talks of the
time that he served in Germany.
His name is Colin Frank Timmins from Leicester (born and lived in Leicester his
whole life) I've made it my mission to see if anyone has any relatives that may
have served at the same time as him and has any pictures, stories or information
that they would like to share.
I would absolutely love this to be shared as far and wide as possible as he
talks of his friends (from his regiment) living all over the U.K. The
information that I have been told is that he served In Iserlohn, Germany from
1954 until 1957. He was part of the 3rd Kings Own Hussars regiment. They were
based working with the race horses and spent some time also in Hanover, Germany.
A really good friend he often talks about is a man called Keith Barton (also
known as Dick Barton) Keith can be seen to the left of picture with my Grandad.
Keith is believed to have been from Blackpool or Harrogate
(not 100% sure) A few other names that my Grandad mentioned from his Regiment
Captain Brown - stable officer
Captain Anthony Triton
Corporal John Delaney
Arthur George Paige - Trooper.
As I’ve already said I know this is a long shot and my Grandad doesn't know I've
done this but I know that if I did find anything out it would make him the
happiest man ever!
So could I just ask everyone to read this and see where it leads too, I'd really
appreciate it as I know my Grandad would too!
Thank you very much!
Barry Coddington: Considering this was in East
Yorks there was a good turn out of Regimental ties!
Band Sergeant Major George Veysey had a good send off.The Service started with the Regt. Slow March. Ray Young paid Tribute from
the Band.The Regimental Collect was read out. The Last Post was beautifully
played by Steve Croney followed by Reveille The Music was operated by Bob Biddle
and done with great aplomb. Then we filed out to the Regimental March.
A good service For a Queens Own Hussars Bandsman.
