Dedicated to the memory of:


Ronald Tanbini 

2nd Battalion Scots Guards

Born on the 4 August 1956, he died on the 13 or 14 June in the battle of Tumbledown Mountain.

Ronnie Tanbini grew up with me in Dundee attended Charleston Primary School and then went to Logie Modern Secondary. He was a great guy always ready with a laugh, although not always funny the laugh prevailed, he had a brother “Roddie” a year younger who was in my class at the schools above.

One leave Ronnie came home on a visit and came to his old school the Logie. When I saw him that was enough for me I signed up and joined the guards.

One month later I was in a place called Pirbright, The Guards Depot, there was no sign of Ronnie he had passed out and was serving as a pioneer with the 2nd Batt Scots Guards. The only time I ever met him was 3yrs later back in Dundee when we were both home on leave. After training I was posted to 1 SG, and now that I am out of the army I always think back and remember Ronnie, a great guy.
