Darrel "Mergatroyd" Quinn passed away on Saturday 13th August following a heart attack. I was informed last night by Titch Harrington, who received a phone call from Merg's wife Kay. At the moment I have no further information. I'm sure our deepest sympathy goes to the family at the loss of Merg, a "Gentle Giant" who wouldn't harm a flea.
Mergatroyd a trusted friend and work mate.
Vale ole buddy,
Having read of Mergs passing I sat in shock for a while.
He was one of my instructors at Wagga in the late 70,s, I visited his home near Richmond, then was reunited with him when he was employed as a civvie at 1CAMD in 1995, A lot of people never new he was a gunnie, but I remember him well and he was a mentor to me.
RIP old buddy
