Chris Abbott – RIP

From Geoff Quick:

I’m very sad to report that Chris Abbott passed away on 14th November, following a long fight with cancer.

I first met Chris when he was a Fg Off at Wildenrath in 1976 where his immensely cheerful character shone brightly, ably supported by Sue. 
Chris had already had active service experience, including doing Regiment soldiering in the Gulf area, a fact somewhat belied by his youthful face but supported by a GSM ribbon. 

Chris was the Camp Commandant for the creation of 6 Site following the Squadron’s move in 1977 and showed as a very competent operator when dealing with situations at all levels. I thoroughly enjoyed working with him and was delighted when we made contact again, after many years, on Social media. By then he was a well respected authority on CBRN force protection and his reputation for effort and dedication continued undiminished. Chris enriched the lives of many and it was a privilege to have known him.
