SCRIVENS I. P.

This page is dedicated to the memory of:

Private

Ian Patrick Scrivens

3rd Battalion The Parachute Regiment

 

My name is Trevor Gillingham, I was in the same class at school as Ian until we left in 1980. I joined the Marines in July of that year with Ian joining the Parachute Regiment a few weeks later. I was with 40 Commando aboard the Canberra and bumped into Ian on the journey south, we shared a beer together. I learnt of his death on the way home.

A good man, taken from us far too young. 
Rest peacefully Ian, never forgotten.
