Obituary – Garry Keat
Whilst I did not know Garry very well, my limited contact with him led me to write a few lines. One of my RAF jobs was Pre-AOC’s P Staff Inspections in Strike Command, with Brian Morrison. Few of us are keen on being inspected but we know it is a fact of life! We found some units neutral in their welcome, some almost aggressive! (Mind you, once when I was being inspected, the IO dropped off to sleep!). Garry, at Mountbatten, was most welcoming and helpful, arranging a boat trip for us with the MCU, and entertaining us in the evening. I subsequently met Garry and his wife at our local reunions, and noted with sadness his medical problems, yet despite these, he always had a smile and a laugh when we chatted. Over recent years, a number of our members had deteriorating health problems, but all, yes all, retained their sense of humour to the end. Vale Garry, many of us will long remember you.
