Thank you Loachman. I knew of his name only, but wanted to post the information for anyone not in the local area/not affiliated with the Regt who may have served with him.

It’s always somewhat difficult to learn of the passing of anyone who’s still so young, even when only familiar with them through association.

Meeting their families for the first time at their funerals is never easy, either, and I've done that far too many times.
