A sto­ried and dis­tin­guished ca­reer

Truro Daily News - - OPINION -

To the edi­tor:

I note with in­ter­est Fram Dinshaw’s re­cent piece on John Flana­gan, telling some of his many tales of a sto­ried and dis­tin­guished ca­reer. Thank you for an ex­cel­lent story.

I served in the Air­borne with Mr. Flana­gan from 1977 to 1980. He was my first Troop Sergeant-ma­jor and was very good to me as I at­tempted to cut my teeth as a new of­fi­cer. He taught me many use­ful and very valu­able les­sons that served me very well as the years passed.

I was lucky to have him as a men­tor.

If you hap­pen to see Mr. Flana­gan in your trav­els, would you be so kind as to pass on my warm­est and sin­cer­est re­gards and best wishes. He still looks the part of a smart sol­dier and clearly the years have treated him well.

Thanks once more for a great piece of work.
