AN OFFICER AND GENTLEMAN PAR EXCELLENCE
This officer held two disciplines. His qualifications were longer than a yard arm. He rose to great heights in service and in civvy streets. He was and is a well liked gentleman.
During his tenure in Jo-Pure he along with a pilot named “BIRD” Sids were the first responders to a fatal accident site.
This gentleman homed in to a particular place of the debris and pulled/picked/extracted a small item from the seat and handed it to “BIRD” Sids and said to him “Put this in your pipe and smoke it”.
He meant it figuratively.
Did this change any form of the enquiry? NO.
Was the enquiry conclusive? YES
Were the post administrative procedures smooth? YES.
His act was the milk of human kindness and goodness to a departed fellow aviator.
I ask those who were in the knowhow, and even those who were not, to stand at attention and throw him a salute.
Thank you, Sir.
Ps: Ask no questions and you will be told no lies.
