Hello. Apologies if this is the wrong place to be posting, I'm new to this.

I am looking for information on a John Harold Lear. I believe he has passed away. My maternal grandmother came with him from Uganda (via Kenya) in 1963/4. They had a son named James Lear, and went on to have a daughter, Tania Lear.
My grandmother was a troubled woman and did not pass on any information about her past. She passed away in 2008 and I am just looking to find out any information I can about her background. We believe she came from Uganda but cannot be sure.
I am hoping that any information I can find about John might help lead me in the right direction.
If anyone thinks they have any information about where John served, or even his relationship with my grandmother (Theresa Tania Lear) it would be very much appreciated. My email address is rachel_nye80@hotmail.com
Kind Regards
Rachel Nye

Absolutely devastated to hear of the death of John Kirkman in that unfortunate accident. The info was posted by an old comrade Dick Hamilton - to hear he has also passed away is unbelievable . Both have given great service to the Corps and the Army.
They will be sadly missed - condolences to all their friends and families.
Time is marching on. Hope they all meet up in the Comcen in the Sky!!

Very sad to report the sudden death of Maj (QM) (Retd) John Kirkman .....
(Remainder of this message has been moved to the Obituary section at Richard's request yesterday. Mike)

From Jim McPhee 01/08/15
Funeral at 1pm on 13th August 2015, at Stonefall Crematorium, Harrogate, N Yorks.

No flowers please but donations in [John's] memory can be made to https://www.justgiving.com/Johnkirkman/

Diane, John's wife, has also intimated that the funeral will be a "non-uniform" event.

I'm sure I speak for all of us on this site when I express our deepest sympathy to John's family following their tragic and senseless loss, Richard.
If you are in touch with them please pass on our sincere condolences.
Mike

Incredibly today I received notification that the poster of this message, Richard (Dick) Hamilton, had himself passed away suddenly on Friday.
Both of these tragedies have been entered in the Obituary section of the website, with details of John Kirkman's funeral added.
Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with both families of these ex-Corps members, now perhaps re-united in death as they were in life.
The lamps will indeed be swinging as sandbags are drawn up and these old friends share stories with the rest of the heavenly hosts.
Certa Cito gentlemen.
Mike

Morning Brian,
You are the early bird! I believe I have a photo from 11 Sigs, it has me (in BD), Fred Brown, Bill Jennings. Do those names ring a bell?
When I work out how to download photos I will send those I have of 8 Sigs as well.
This is certainly stirring up old memories!
Cheers,
Dave

Scan the photos if you can, Dave, and simply attach them to an email by clicking on the link at the bottom of any page on this website.
If you don't have access to a scanner come back to us and we can make other arrangements.
Mike

I'm always up early nowadays. Mind you, have not done badly this morning - it's just after 7-30.
Fred Brown and Bill Jennings both ring bells but I could not picture a face. But I have an image of you in my mind. I think I could pick you out on a photo.

It must be catching for those looking after this website.
My morning rising time is 5.00a.m. eek!
But website matters have to wait till after the morning exercise embarrassment

Afternoon Brian, thanks for the info, I will remember in future! And yes, same Dave Ayres. I can't recall a photo being taken: I'm sure that my mother would have kept one if we had! I went to 8 Sigs from 11 Sigs for trade training. I have some photos from there. Great to hear from you! Cheers, Dave

Brian Tuesday, 28 July 2015 05:20
Dave. Thank you for the reply. Always good to know people are still going strong. I didn't remember a photo being taken either and I felt the same: mum would have kept it.
Get your photos scanned and let's all see them. I love looking at old photos, especially photos taken from the Corps. I look at every photo posted on the site.
