Tommy Dalton RIP

Sadly, I've just had a call from Charlie Hawkins to tell me that Tommy Dalton has passed away.

I can't personally recall Tommy but understand he was the Signals wallah in Fallingbostel. I did a search of the 42 photo archive but none of Tommy.

Sad news, my thoughts go out to his family and friends. RIP

Always sad to hear of a fellow Gunners passing Jim. Like you I don't remember Tommy. I left the Regt not long after getting to Fally but RIP Tommy.
