It is with much regret that I have inform you that Neil Campbell formerly (LOWE) passed away on Sat 20 Jan 2017. His son, Gordon, writes "my father was a very proud man who loved to inform every of his service to the Queen with KOYLI. During his career he served in KENYA, ADEN and CYPRUS".
I was contacted by Gordon, last year, about a surprise for Neil's birthday. Some of you may remember the picture of a very proud Neil holding a KOYLI birthday cake. RIP Neil your duty done and you can join your KOYLI brothers in the final RV. CEDE NULLIS.
