Roll of Honour



Gerry Hicks



A rather reserved gentleman, who despite being a member of the Aldershot branch for many years, rarely spoke of his previous military service. He is understood to have served in other units prior to joining 131 Para Engr Regt (TA) over the period 1955-63 where his troop was initially based in Guildford and later in Farnham, Surrey. His service days with 131 took him on exercises to Germany, Holland and numerous training areas around the UK.

He maintained his fitness by regular attendance at the gym from his late 70s into his early 80s,

Accompanied by his wife Nicole they rarely missed a branch meeting or function/BBQ and also joined other members of the branch on a pilgrimage to Normandy, organised by the late John Smith.
Gerry passed way at his home on 18th January and his cremation service was held at Guildford on 1st March 2021

RIP Gerry
