Sorry to inform you all that 23963204 Frank 'Geordie' Pierpoint passed away in March 2009. He served at Denbury April 1963 to December 1964 in Quadrant Troop returning as a Signalman in January 1965 to complete his BIII Comcen Operator training.
From Denbury he was posted to 4 Division HQ & Signal Regiment; 249 Signal Squadron (FARELF) and 28 (BR) Signal Regiment (NORTHAG). From: Steve Wright

 
 

A great friend for 45 years, we first met at 4 Div Signals, Herford in 1964 and immediately struck up a friendship. Although we lost touch due to our respective postings I am pleased to say we met up again in the big wide world after army life.
Frank never changed and stayed 'young and daft' until his sudden death in March this year, shortly after taking early retirement. Sadly he didn't live to enjoy his well deserved rest. To use the old cliché, 'Old soldiers die but are never forgotten'. I'll miss you mate. From: Keith Hind

 
 

He will be much missed by all who knew him especially all the the Ex-boys from Denbury, especially the intake of April 1963. From: Douglas Robert Hellyar
