Very sad news received from Sue Bosson
I'm afraid to tell you that he died last Friday at Shrewsbury hospital. He had a urinary infection which was complicated by the long term prostate cancer (16 years).

I'm not sure if he ever got on the new website of yours but he had been very active on-line and with anything that involved banking as he was treasurer to a few organisations. He sitll enjoyed football and cricket.

We would have been married for 47 years in December.

Sue Bosson
RIP John. Sincere condolences to Sue

Here's what John had recorded:
I was the RAPC Pay Clerk attached to B Squadron from May 1959 to January 1961. After joining up with the Regiment at Hohne in early May 1959 I journied to link up with B Squadron in Berlin later that month and spent 18 months at Smuts Barracks until the Regiment re-amalgamated at Hohne in November 1960. My National Service ended in January 1961 when I was demobbed.
