William Blackwood HLI

William Blackwood HLI

It was with great sadness that we learned on Thursday the 3rd August 2017, that Willie Blackwood (HLI and RHF) had passed away.  Willie was a very well known and much respected figure who began his military career in the HLI and moved into the RHF on amalgamation in 1959.  He was probably best remembered as one of the battalion boxing champions.  A fine soldier and sportsman, and a true gentleman.

Gone but not forgotten
