This page is dedicated to the memory of:


Ian Patrick Scrivens

3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment


My name is Trevor Gillingham, I was in the same class at school as Ian until we left in 1980. I joined the Marines in July of that year with Ian joining the Parachute Regiment a few weeks later. I was with 40 Commando aboard the Canberra and bumped into Ian on the journey south, we shared a beer together. I learnt of his death on the way home.

A good man, taken from us far too young. 

Rest peacefully Ian, never forgotten.

Family and friends are encouraged to contribute.

We will add information to this memorial as we receive it.

If you have a photo, an anecdote, or simply to say you remember him, we will be very pleased to hear from you, so please contact the sama office at
