Eddie and Helen Grisedale

Just a short note to mark the passing of two old friends. Eddie had passed away a little time ago and I have just been told that Helen has also died.

In 9 Signal Regiment during the later ’70s, among the many station¬†activities, they were involved in the Mercury Theatre Group and The Folk club to name but two.

They lived round the corner from me in Ay Nik and my first Siberian, Sascha, used to baby sit for them.

I lost track of them after I was demobbed and it is only through the good offices of facebook friends that I am able to pay this small tribute. ¬†I’m sure their family and friends will miss them.

Unfortunately I can only find one photo at the moment which was taken at a Sgts Mess function somewhere around ’76 – 78.
