    Ray [Spinner] Bradshaw.

    29 May 2018.

    ex Malay Scouts, SAS, 7th Para RHA, AO Regiment RA, and finally RSM of the UDR.
    Joined in 1946 lying about his age and finding the RA a bit tame he subsequently volunteered for the Malay Scouts during the Emergency. Joined 22 and was with them for 10 years. Served with 7th RHA and often led the Omex Patrols into the Muscat from the Para Bn in Bahrain. Served with Cdo AO Batteries and subsequently became the Unit Sgt Major of 95 FOU in Poole. Late call in his 40's for promotion to RSM of the UDR after which he finally retired. A fine soldier who did it all. RIP mate.
