R.I.P. Major Terry O’Halloran

It is with great sadness that we report the passing to higher service of major Terry O’Halloran.

Terry was a great friend of the Jocks and was the chairman of wits Rifles Association, as well as Treasurer of MAG.

It is difficult for the WRA to organise a memorial, due to Covid-19, but we will keep you informed of a suitable service at a future date.

Our Deepest sympathy to his wife, Vi, and their son Patrick and family.

It is with great sadness that I must report the passing of Major Lyall Ferguson. The Major unfortunately lost his long battle with cancer this evening. Major Ferguson was a stalwart of the Traditional Regiments having served with the SA Irish and Transvaal Scottish. His role in pers helped many and he was a great supporter of Regimental traditions and the Pipes and Drums. Our thoughts go out to his family and loved ones in this difficult time. Faugh a Ballagh Major. You will be sorely missed. May your soul Rest In Peace!
