Graham or Chissie as he was known was a well know helicopter pilot in the SAAF. He retired as a Lieutenant Colonel with many operational tours behind his name. I think there are many ex SAAF pilots on this forum that would like to be informed. Our condolences to his family.....

R.I.P. Lieutenant Colonel :(

I only met him recently but the short time I knew him, made a big impact. A man of respect strength and integrity. You will be missed by many and I’m glad that I got to share a few glasses of red wine and listen to some great stories.

A true gentleman He was. Met him back in 2005 in Vilanculos while 15Sqn was on a VVIP trip and have bumped into him many more times at the Wings Club on a thursday afternoon. He always had a smile on his face and would make an effort to say hello no matter how busy he was.

RIP Sir. Condolences to his family.
