I believe John died a few days ago. John was a Sirhowy boy who lived near top of Sirhowy Hill for much of his life.
He and I served together in 20 Medium Regt, initially in Edinburgh, then in our country's hour of need in Cyprus. We sailed in the carrier HMS Ocean from Devonport, there were four Tredegar boys on that ship, and, on landing in Cyprus, John who was in 20 Btty went to Pinefields Camp nr Paphos. I was in 71 Btty and we went up in the hills to Stroumbi. I didnt see him again in Cyprus but did on returning to Edinburgh. Those taxpayers certainly paid for us to see the world.
RIP John, you will be sadly missed
