Dear Member / Friend
It is with regret that we inform you of the death of Paddy Berry. Paddy appeared to have suffered a heart attack whilst on a run in Cape Town.
Paddy was ex 3 Commando.11 Troop (Intake 150)
Our sincere condolences to Paddy's family and friends.
He was just a common Soldier and his ranks are growing thin. But his presence should remind us, we may need his like again For when countries are in conflict, then we find the Soldier's part, is to clean up all the troubles that the politicians start. If we cannot do him honour, while he's here to hear the praise, Then at least let's give him homage, at the ending of his days. Perhaps just a simple headline, in the paper that might say:
"OUR COUNTRY IS IN MOURNING, FOR A SOLDIER DIED TODAY."
