In his early days in the TA Ken was definitely a “Folkestone Fusilier”, spending most of his annual camps there.He was always the centre of any fun, good times, good humour or prank.He was a terrific entertainer with his tales and his singing of anything from light opera to naughty ditties – but without any rude words. He would tenaciously pursue a correct and just cause with all his guile and energy.“Having a bit tonight” meant “rolly polly” – which was whatever you wanted it to be! In the toughest days Ken was a man to be working for as he never let his team down, nor would he accept a less than satisfactory solution.He retired to Highcliffe with his wife Doris of more than 50 years where they enjoyed many happy times together. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with his Army friends & would look forward to his ccouple of weeks each year back in uniform.
He loved to sail – especially on holiday with Liz and their boys.Ken did not shy away from the task of taking the Group from the comfort and support of Mill Hill and its postal empathy to the unknown that was Grantham, and being part of a very large TA organisation.At the same time he had to downsize the Group, from four to three Regiments and take manning from 75 officers and 750 soldiers to 55 and around 550 – and improve military skills!Ken was born in Wigan in November 1938 and had two hugely successful careers both which involved things of import to him – people and the post. They benefited from it by enjoying themselves – having a good time – or learning and being better fitted for their jobs.He was a huge character who easily filled a room – and often filled a bar!
