Hi sexpert, thanks for sharing this with us. I'll admit that I didn't know that he had passed away, As for joining the TA, well good on ya! And not just anyone, TA paras.
His family can be proud of him, because if needed, he was there and trained for.
RIP.
I did read somewhere that he did visit some Camps always shook hands..etc. Was the real deal as the yanks say :) sadly they turned him down for James Bond.. Think because he was too Direct...some BS like that.
