For those who did not know of Ian (Winnie) Winstone. Winnie was a KOSB boy entrant at IJLB Oswestry in circa 1966, joining the First Battalion in Osnabruck where he became a Cpl in the Recce Pl. In 1971 he passed SAS selection and subsequently served with 22 SAS for the remainder of his military service with appointments including SSM of G Sqn. Knowing he was dying from cancer he planned his funeral to include a KOSB piper and requested the KOSB regimental flag be placed on his coffin along with that of 22 SAS. Ian was always a Borderer.
