It is with sadness that we have to report that Derek Gerald Denton Late KOYLI/2LI passed away on 16 Apr 2018 aged 78. The thoughts and condolences of all members of the Association are with Derek's family at this very sad and difficult time.

On the 8th of May 2018 in the packed Jump village church the Regimental Association Vice President Lt Col Graham Whitmoor, Standard Bearers Tim Humphreys and Colin Cranswick with bugler Pete Bate from the Veterans Buglers Association joined Daz's family, friends and former KOYLIs who served with him.

Derek's sister Patricia has emailed the follow message of thanks: "It was such a pleasure to have representatives of his regiment. A bugler and standard bearers were present and I found them most comforting". Thanks Patricia Bly Derek's sister.

As the bugle sounds No More Parades and you take your place in the Final RV, Rest in peace "Daz" as he was known to friends. Cede Nullis.
