Roll of Honour



A Tribute to John Baker


John (titch) Hughes

Former colleagues (especially Support Troop members) travelled from across the country (including Scotland) to pay their last respects at the funeral of John Baker at Milford, Surrey Roman Catholic church on Tuesday 2nd February. Following a period of ill health; John sadly passed away at the tender age of 47 years on 25th January 2016.

A former military friend and colleague gave John a fitting tribute for his professional soldiering career and most emphatically for John's prowess as an extremely competent boxer and boxing trainer.

John's family were amazed at the number of airborne colleagues who had come to bid their final farewell to a former colleague.
