Geoff (GRJ) Holder



Pay Respect

From the Regimental Secretary:

I regret to inform the wider Army Aviation family of the death of Major (Retd) GRJ Holder RE (Geoff) on 15 Oct 13 at his home in Spain, aged 70.

Geoff was commissioned into the RE in 1965 and served with 9 Ind Para Sqn RE and 131 Para Sqn RE(V) before attending Army Pilot Course No 222 in 1971/72. He was posted to 656 Sqn AAC (Sek Kong) from 1972 to 1975 and later with 664 Sqn AAC. A note in the Daily Telegraph reports that he spent time at the Empire Test Pilot School and later with McAlpine Helicopters and Lynton Aviation. He was cremated soon after his death at a service in Spain attended by close family members. Geoff was not a member of the AACVA and we hold no details for his family.
