    My dear Sue and family, I was so so sorry and upset to hear of Tommy's passing. He was a star to me, a fantastic mentor and I was very proud to have served with him. He will never be forgotten. I know Midleton is in shock. My deepest condolences again, Ger

    I met Tommy upon his arrival in Hereford in 1977 and have been honoured and privileged to have been his long-standing friend / neighbour and military colleague. Tommy was a truly inspirational man; a popular and a well-respected soldier. My sincerest condolences to Sue, Thomas and James and all their families. RIP Tommy
