Vincent NORMAN WOOD (RCD) - 06 Mar 1926 - 16 Feb 2018
« on: February 18, 2018, 13:43:10 »
From the RCD Net....We regret the passing of a long time RCD Association member and loyal supporter of the Regiment.  Many will remember Norm for his support at the Warriors Day Parades at the CNE and his regular visits to the Regiment for Parades and Leliefontein celebrations.  Norm was very active in keeping the history of the Regiment alive.  He will be greatly missed by all who have had the pleasure of knowing him.

Met Norm when I was a young Trooper. He was always a staunch Regimental supporter and for many years acted as the go between of the Regiment and Association.

Godspeed Norm :salute:

I met Norm for the first time back in the 70's as well, and at one of the RV's.
Genuinely nice guy.
