o-4-lt-gen-reillyGeneral Reilly was a Regimental legend. Although not fortunate enough to have served under him as CO, we were all raised on stories of his exploits in Northern Ireland with the Second Battalion.  As Colonel of the Regiment, he steered us through difficult times and my fondest memory of him was his visit to Deilinghofen before we deployed to the Gulf in 1990.  His words were inspirational – he was an inspirational leader and a great man.

We will say our farewells to him on 6 June in Warwick.  Please place a note in your diaries.
