JAMBO (John)

It's my sad duty to report the death of Jambo (John) early on Sunday morning at his home in Lincoln. Before his illness got worse he was a regular on here and had many friends. I am proud to say that he was my friend too. John was a most compassionate man, always asking after the wellbeing of others. He served for many years in the Grenadier Guards.

His passing will bring sadness to many. RIP old mate.

A loyal soldier who served his country most of his life, and was proud to. At only 55 you are gone to soon. We need more Johns in this world.
