Stephen Smyth (Martlet 65] writes:
“Because his parents lived in Ceylon, Mr Heslop asked my mother to have him home at exeats, as we lived close by at Ditchling. We remained friends thereafter. Only last summer he and I were together in Jersey for the wedding of his eldest son, my godson. He was the proud father of five sons.
“He went to Sandhurst in 1965, and was commissioned into the Gurkhas two years later. Perhaps Harry Maxwell had some influence in his choice of regiment! He served in Hong Kong, Borneo and Germany, but was happiest commanding a unit in Khatmandu. Whilst there I am told he made the finals of the World Elephant Polo Championships! His other interest was old MG cars, and he was to have been secretary of their club this year. He was also expecting to be a grandfather.”
A service of thanksgiving was held at RMA Sandhurst on 29 April 2002.
