It is with great sadness and extreme regret that I announce that ex-Cpl Ronald "Smudge" Smith, who had served as Storeman for B (KOSB) Coy at the TA Centre in Galashiels, sadly passed away on Tuesday 15th April. Smudge had been suffering from cancer for some time.

Smudge was a damned good bloke, a good and true Borderer, and a thoroughly efficient Storeman. He was a good friend to all those who served at Galashiels over so many years and he will be hugely missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

I offer my sincere condolences to his family at this sad time.

A funeral service will take place at 1100hrs on Wednesday 23rd April in St John's Church, Hawthorn Road, Langlee, Galashiels TD1 2JZ. Please pass this on to all your contacts, TA or otherwise, to ensure a good attendance.

I always remember "bungs" rare sense of humour and his ability to attach nicknames that stuck.

My father ,DEREK TALBOT who passed away in Spain 4 years ago was a Borderer.Unfortunatly I never got to know anything of his service career or fellow squaddies.I was born in 1959 so he would have met my mother a few years before that probably when his battalion was at Ballykinlar.I know he served in Korea aswell.Anyone remember him or can tell me which battalion etc he served in or what ranks he attained ??

Dorothy & I would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to Ann and Family (Linsey & Stephen) on their tragic loss of a husband and father. We go back many years (1962 Aden) when I first met Bung. We shared a Family block in Berlin and had some hilarious nights in our converted Cellar Bar (The Pop Inn).We served together on the 1972 Royal Guard Ballater, in Berlin and many a tour in NI (from one of which he was awarded the MM) and we will always remember Les (as Bung) with great affection . Farewell to another true Borderer. RIP Bung
