It is with much regret and sadness that I have to announce the death of Johnny Meechan, who passed awayon the 5th March 2014 after a long battle with Lung Cancer. As a young NCO in Osnabruck I always wondered who it was who was scribbling the words “The Fly was here” on every cludgie, in every barracks and training area that I went into, as well as most of the local beer bars!. I was soon to find out. Although he never admitted to it at the time, Johnny was the culprit. Many years later I got to know Johnny better as a member of the Edinburgh Branch, and eventually as one of the Branch Committee. He was a loyal Queen’s Own Highlander and great character.
He will be sadly missed.
