Roll of Honour



WO2 (AQMS) Ron Greenhaigh


Ron died in December 2008, aged 68. He had served on contract in SAF in the 1980s as a Warrant Officer in tech EME Workshops, where he was recognised as being an outstanding artificer and teacher of great determination, commitment and humour.

His service in the British Army started at the Army Apprentices School at Chepstow and continued with the REME detachments with the Parachute Brigade, where despite his small stature he was respected by all with whom he came in contact. Stories about his humour are legion, as a young soldier serving with 9 Parachute Squadron Royal Engineers at Cove, he took to marching out to the main Oxford - London railway line and saluting the train. Clearly mystified but feeling the urge to respond, after a few days the passengers would all stand to attention in the carriages and return his salute!

He is much missed by his wife Irene and their two daughters and by his many friends
