My squadron leader, my Commanding officer, a tough but fair soldier. A great horseman.

To the Hon Mrs Mary and all Ramsay Family, pleases accept or condolences on this sad occasion.

I write on behalf of Intake 17 at the RMA Sandhurst, commissioned in July 1956 and myself as fellow graduate who has had the privilege of organising our Reunions over the last 12 years. During this time, I have been supported by many, not the least, by Charles with whom I was in touch as recently as last August when we discussed another Reunion. It is therefore with great sadness that I heard of his passing.

I met Charles when we reported for basic training at Catterick 1954. A motley bunch of recruits in the days of National Service of over 90, we were a small group already committed to moving on to the RMA Sandurst and the prospect of a Regular Commission in the Army . Regardless of our backgrounds, we came to grips with the majority, of every background, destined for the Royal Armoured Corps mostly, the Cavalry. We have all looked back on that time as an essential opportunity to really get to know our future soldiers. They regarded us with cautious curiosity! No time for any illusions, just muck in, accept the banter (!) and the instructors who ignored our aspirations. Three months later, we spent time as Potential Officers to try the patience of any Sergeant.

Our group also included the late Jeremy James who was to be commissioned along with Charles into the Greys. I only realised how close they remained over the years, when Charles who informed me of his departure.

I can add little to the other tributes which abound, other than to endorse them.

Charles was a true Gentleman and more. A very difficult act to follow and greatly missed by all who knew him. We WILL remember him

I lost my wife in 2011 and I understand what you feel. Best wishes for the future.
