Spoke to Bill a few times about being a bootneck. If anyone's interested, there's a documentary here on Bill's specific branch of the marines. It's a captivating watch, even to the well acquainted. True soldiers.

Saw this comment on FB from one of his servicemen. What a tribute Bow down

Quote:
It is my sad duty to inform you that former Warrant Officer Class 1 ; Regimental Sergeant Major ( Mountain leader Class 1 ) ; Bill ( Shiner ) Wright has " Crossed the Bar ". A man who went from Royal Marine to RSM with maximum effort on a daily basis and who injected bite into his daily business and at all times remained thoroughly professional , polite and deeply caring about his men....Per Mare Per Terram. ( RIP)

This man was the bench mark in my time that we would all try to achieve. He would have been an RSM in any force he was apart of. I spoke with him at the Al Blackman rally in Brum with Rory Dale little did we know he was dying.

I have just been out with another military Hereford legend who is not at all well. These blokes would have ate me for breakfast. Such men are and will be such a loss to the world and the security of our nation.

Time respects no man.
Enjoy it while you can.

RIP Shiner Wright Recce Troop 40 Commando.

I'm very saddened to hear of Bill's passing, to echo what others have said, in conversation he was always hugely polite and brought a lot of smiles/groans to the forum courtesy of his turn of the century (last century) joke book.

You will be missed awfully Bill. RIP Sad
