Dear All
I have just received the following:
It is with great sadness that Hawkeye has been informed of the passing of Commander

period of illness. Alex, as known as “Buck” served as an Army Commando with the
Royal Engineers from 1992 until 1997, with appointments in 131 Independent
Commando Squadron RE, 29 Commando Regiment RA and 40 Commando RM,
which took him to Cyprus for a UN tour in 1995 and into the Far East in 1997. He
commissioned into the Army Air Corps from RMAS in 1998 on course 973. On
completion of his Army Pilot Course and conversion to Gazelle in 2000 he went on to
join 9 Regt AAC at Dishforth with deployments to Northern Ireland, Kosovo, Bosnia
and Canada. Following a tour as ADC to CDS in 2004/05 he was promoted to Major

and admiration for what he achieved.
