Fond Farewells to 12 Stalwart Members of the 44th!

During the period January to July of '73 we have said goodbyes to 12 Ventures who have been the backbone of the Unit over the past 3-4 years. To lose Roland Lloyd, Tim Holford, Pete Irvine, Ed Badham, Phil Stroud, Nick Pearce, Jake Davies, John Williams, Dave Vale, Chris Ramstedt, Paul Hodges, & Nigel Gosden has been a great blow to the unit. Amongst them seven have achieved the elusive and highly acclaimed award of Queen's Scout. We wish them well in their future endeavours and careers and look forward to them returning from time to time.
