OFFICER'S PERSONAL OCCURRENCE - MAJOR R M T REAMES

23 November 2016

OFFICER'S PERSONAL OCCURRENCE

1. With great sadness, I report the death, on Wednesday 23rd November 2016 after a short illness, of Major Robin Reames. Robin was commissioned into the Regiment in 1987, having started his military career as an 'Educator'. He served in both Battalions, in HQ 22 Arms Bde, attended the Italian Staff College (which made him the natural choice for a staff job in Brunei!) and ended his time in the Regiment as Senior Major of the 1st Battalion. He was a keen and varied sportsman, and a very keen rugby player. Robin was a delightful man who was widely liked, admired and respected in equal measure.

2. If you would like to write to his Widow, Jo, the address is: Black Lion House, Fordcombe Road, Fordcombe, Tunbridge Wells, Kent, TN3 0RD

3. There are, as yet, no details of funeral arrangements, but these will be promulgated when known.
