    Bill Clayden, may you rest in peace. Your worth, whilst rare and all too often unspoken, will be sorely missed but happily remembered by all those fortunate enough to have known you. Your decades of dedicated Army service came with inherent sacrifice to family and friends. You had no agenda, no ambition for self, your priority was to serve others to the best of your ability. You did so with an unassuming kindness and care, bringing success to others, whilst delivering above and beyond as your standard. You always made the time: to help, to mentor, to raise spirits and to join the banter. The sadness that descends in writing these words is lifted with the life-long memories I will cherish of the ease with which you simply made me smile – every day. This was one of your many gifts. All who had the privilege of serving alongside you knew it made for a better day with you amongst their ranks.
