    Good write up that,thanks Don.I always thought he had been invalided out after he left us in Germany,over his sleeping issue,as I never heard of him or encountered him again,so was surprised to hear he served on till 2000!There was a tale told of someone,I think it was said to be the RSM,walking past his office,and seeing him asleep over a report he was writing,turned his pen round,so that as his head dropped it stabbed him in the forehead,leaving a black dot for days!Probably apocryphal,but caused a laugh at the time!
