Capt (Retd) Kevin Paul Yarker - Late REME and Serjeant 2LI

It is with great sadness that I have to inform members that Capt (Retd) Kevin Paul Yarker - Late REME and Serjeant 2LI died on 22 March 2024 aged 68.

Kev, served in the 2LI attaining the rank of Sjt. After leaving regular service Kev took a permanent staff appointment with a REME reserve unit in the rank of Capt. Kev was highly respected by all ranks and an strong member of the Battalion and a member of Leeds branch of our Association. Our thoughts are with Kev's wife Sue, his family, friends and all who knew and served with him.


As the bugle sounds 'No More Parades' and you take your place in the FRV,

your duty done with honour and distinction.

Rest in Peace Kevin.

Cede Nullis.
