He passed away on the 6th April 2019 with complications due to Motor Neurone Disease. He leaves behind Pam, his wife, and 5 children: Natasha, Daniel, Jake, Ross and Zak.

Les served in Blandford, Catterick and Cyprus (amongst others places) and also worked in Kuwait, Afghanistan, Saudi, Belgium (as a civilian).

His funeral will take place on 26th April 2019 at Surfleet Crematorium, Lincolnshire at 10am. If you knew Les and would like to pay your respects, despite the years, then please do come along and help us celebrate a life that was taken from us at such a young age of 54.

I hope that this get through to some ex-colleagues
