    Who remembers the song Brothers in arms, by Dire Straights?

    My time to pass or come again, the wheel of life keeps turning.

    I'm a big fan of Dire Straits as well and that song is very poignant at times.
    I don't think I met Stacks back then, but it's very sad to hear of his passing.

    Very sad news indeed.

    It would have been great to meet up with him at a reunion but sadly it was not to be.
    Regards to all his family.
    RIP

    I didn't know "Stacks" but from all the posts on here he was a great bloke and a good "oppo" to a lot of ex Lowies.

    RIP Shippers.

    Agreed Richie, a brilliant band, wasn't Brothers in Arms the title track of the album. We have got Alchemy on CD, another brilliant DS album.

    Reckon that song would be a fitting epitaph for any of us ex servicemen.

    Stacks who lived in Wells, Somerset suffered a major stroke in 2015 which rendered him needing 24 hour care.
    His son says he was a 'free spirit' and until he fell ill was always happy as long as he had someone to share a drink with and discuss the issues of the day.

    The cremation will be on the 10 June 2016 at Mendip crematorium at 1500.

    RIP Stacks.

    Sandy & Jacqui Sanders, Johno Johnson and myself attended Stack's cremation this afternoon at the Mendip Crematorium, nr Wells, Somerset.
    We were made very welcome by his son Toby and he got a good send off on his final draft.
    RIP

    Good that someone was able to go and represent the Association at the funeral.
