Sadly Geoff Northey passed away on Friday 5th March 2021.

I first met Geoff on January 8th 1963 when we joined D Platoon of Recruit Sqn at the Army Apprentices School Harrogate. Geoff left Harrogate in 1964 and during the next 22 years served in the Far East, Germany, the U.K. and completed his service as the WO1(R.S.M.) of 21 Signal Regt.

In 2010 7 members of Intake 63A held a mini reunion in Harrogate and I was able to renew my friendship with Geoff. Over the last 10 years we have met at various reunions and Geoff as usual was the life and soul of the party.

R.I.P. Geoff - you are sadly missed by all the guys from 63A.

NALLON, David Arthur (Danny)

Danny, as he was known, has succumbed to Covid-19 in Texas on the 7th of March 2021.

I met Dan when we served together at 28 (BR) Signal Regiment in the early 70s. He was always smiling and had a wicked sense of humour. He will be sorely missed. RIP

Lou served in various regiments but I knew him from 225 Signal Sqd, Langenleben, and in Oman where he worked in the field workshops at Airworks Ltd.
