John Squire
Whilst John Squire (33-36C) was sadly unable to join us at this year’s service, he joined us at the school to observe a two minute silence in the Quad on 11th November. Like many of his comrades he wore his medals with pride and humility.

Deep thanks goes to Dave Flynn SSI and a fellow serving soldier who took away the medals and with the help of some of his contacts at RMB Chivenor replaced the ribbons and returned them to their original condition.
