Editorial

     Welcome to 2007 and a special year in the Association calendar. It is the
90thanniversary of the battle for the Karm railhead, in which many soldiers of
the Middlesex Yeomanry paid the ultimate sacrifice for their bravery and
heroism, marked every year by the Association in the celebrations of Lafone Day.

      The Membership Secretary received an interesting correspondence from
Australia, enclosing a copy of a chapter on a new book about the Light Horse
Regiment, who relieved the Middlesex Yeomanry at Hill 720 and the Karm
Railhead in 1917 and parts of the correspondence are transcribed as an historical
reference. I hope to be able to copy some of it into the Newsletter, at a later date

     In excess of 230 copies of the last Newsletter were sent by post including 10
overseas, and over 20 by electronic format. The membership of the Association
continues to grow steadily. If any members have information, anecdotes or
anything of interest to the Association, I will be pleased to publish them, space
permitting.

    The Association is sad to report the passing of LtCol. Simon Beazley, late
Commanding Officer of the Middlesex Yeomanry when the 40th and 47th
amalgamated into one regiment. Please refer to the latter pages of the
Newsletter for more information.

Meetings of the Middlesex Yeomanry Association

      The Association meets quarterly at the Territorial Army Centre in
Honeycroft Hill, Uxbridge, on the 1st Tuesday in March, the last Tuesday in
April, the 1st Tuesday in October and the last Tuesday in November, of each
year. The AGM precedes the April meeting.

     The Quarterly meeting of the Association was held at the TA Centre, in
Uxbridge on Tuesday 6th March 2007. Lt Col Don Grocott as President, George
Key as Chairman, Andrew Bridges as Secretary and 8 other members stood to
attention to mark the passing of Col Beazley, Sidney Coombes, Mr Walters and
Kenneth Satchel.

     Discussions ensued on the forthcoming Cavalry Parade, Lafone Day and
the Pearson Shoot, with contributions on the new web-site and the planned
Squadron trip to Northern France.


The Combined Cavalry Association Memorial Parade

       The Combined Cavalry Association parade will take place on Sunday 13th
May 2007. Members of the Association who would like tickets to the standing or
seating enclosure are asked to contact the Honorary Secretary. Please note there
are a limited amount of tickets available and they will be issued on a „first come
first served‟ basis.

      With the ongoing security threats in the City, members are asked to be
vigilant and not to leave bags unattended. Members marching and / or viewing,
are asked to be at their respective places by 10:00 am.

      HRH The Princess Royal, Colonel in Chief of the Royal Corps of Signals
(and therefore the Middlesex Yeomanry), is to take the salute. It is hoped,

                                       -2-
subject to military commitments, that one or both of the serving royal princes
may take part in the parade.

Royal Signals Reunion in July 2007, in Blandford

      The Royal Signals Association Reunion will place at Blandford Camp on
the weekend of 30th Jun – 1st Jul 2007. Information details, instructions and
application forms for access and meals, are available on the following website.
www.army.mod.uk/royalsignals/rsa . The Royal Signals Newsletter is also
available to download or from the Secretary


Lafone Day Parade

      Lafone day will take place on Sunday 21st October, at St Paul‟s Cathedral.
Parade is expected to be at 2 pm, with a contingent from the Middlesex
Yeomanry band in attendance, subject to confirmation. At the time of printing, it
is planned to march to the Middlesex Yeomanry Church, St Martins within
Ludgate, for a service of remembrance, again with the Middlesex Yeomanry band

                                       -3-
in attendance. All is subject to Squadron confirmation and details will appear in
the next newsletter, which will be published prior to the Lafone weekend.


Middlesex Yeomanry Annual Dinner.

      David Valentine reports : The 79th Annual Dinner which was again held
at the TA Centre in Uxbridge was another great night with a total of 71 in
attendance. The squadron took 3 tables but remain outnumbered by the
Association, who's top table guest this year was LtCol C S Tallents, CO 71 Signal
Regiment. Following another fine spread managed by 'ration grandad' SSgt Andy
Cummings, the eloquent speeches were very generously rewarded with an after
dinner collection of £345. This was split 3 ways this year with £115 going to the
Cadet Squadron who continue to support the occasion by providing enthusiastic
waiting staff. The remained was divided between the Band and the Association.

We just about broke even on the night but given that this year will be our 80th
Dinner, we hope to enhance the menu and have a band quartet playing in the
background so it is likely that the ticket price will increase to £25. Please note
the date for this years Dinner (Saturday 20th October), ticket applications being
sent out with our Autumn newsletter in September.

I'm sure that it will be another fantastic get together and look forward to seeing
some new old faces!'

David can be contacted at his address at the end of the newsletter

Annual Subsciptions

Many of you generously pay an annual standing order to help fund the activities
of the Association, but not everyone does. If you have not already done so and
would like to set up an annual standing order, or indeed increase your existing
payment, please find attached the required authority (page 15) which you should
complete and return to the Hon Treasurer. Thank you.


Squadron / Association Summer Shoot.

     Last summer, the Squadron hosted members of the Association who were
given the opportunity to shoot the new A2 weapon on a live firing range. It was
a most successful day and plans are afoot for a further date to be penciled into


                                        -4-
the Squadron‟s diary later this year, probably 28th July. If you are interested in
attending, please contact the Squadron, or the Honorary Secretary




The Pearson Shoot

     Hurrah for the Association who were victorious in the latest Pearson Shoot
in December. Particular thanks to the Treasurer who shot exceedingly well.
Congratulations also, to Graham Kneafsey, Simon Crowe, Ray Peters, Mr
Barnett and John Redwood, who will get their tankards at the Lafone Dinner.
Congrats also to Grey Seal for his vocal support and ensuring, with Ted Scarlett,
that many members of the Association got the chance to shoot.
     The annual Pearson shoot will be held on Tuesday 11th December at the TA
Centre on Honeycroft Hill, Uxbridge, starting at 7:30 pm.

47 (Middlesex Yeomanry) Signal Squadron.

The Squadron Commander writes: -

Since the last report, the Squadron has continued to settle into 71 Signal
Regiment, where the emphasis is very much on the Yeomanry aspects, and have
to remind them that we have been Signals since 1920. In seeking to forge some
cohesion with the Regiment, we have taken on the task of running a battlefield
study of the battle of Villers-Bocage, in which the Middlesex Yeomanry was the
Brigade Signal Squadron, and the 4th County of London Yeomanry were the
spearhead armoured unit. 4 CLY‟s descendants include 265 (Kent and County of
London Yeomanry) Signal Squadron, one of our sister squadrons in the
Regiment, and it therefore seems a good way to develop the relationship. We
will be in Normandy over the weekend 20-22 April and members of the
Association are welcome to come along, albeit that the Squadron will not be able
to provide any transport or accommodation. Both the President and the
Chairman of the Association (the latter a veteran of the battle) hope to be there.
Association members who want further details should contact me via the
Squadron PSAO, Capt Dave Gibson.

     The Squadron has a primary operational role as a Close Support squadron
providing Information and Communication Systems support to the Regional
Chain of Command if Military Aid to the Civil Authorities is required. It is not a
glamorous role, but it does provide something of value to the community whom
we serve, and inevitably we will be called upon one day. We also continue to

                                        -5-
provide soldiers to expeditionary operations, and have been pleased to welcome
home safely LCpl Bansal, LCpl Sanghera (again) and SSgt Cheshire (yet again!)
from Iraq. All three of them earned significant praise for their performance in-
theatre. 2 other soldiers are currently training in preparation for an Iraq tour,
and we wish them well.

      The true strength of the Squadron has remained at around 60 personnel of
all ranks. Despite herculean efforts from the serving soldiers, we have been
unable as yet to exploit the additional footprint which comes from our second TA
Centre in High Wycombe. Unless we get additional recruiting resources
allocated, progress in building up strength is likely to be steady at best.

      The Squadron has been bearing the considerable burden of expectation that
goes with being holders of the Courage Trophy, and once again training for this
has been very focussed and determined. However, it will be nigh on impossible
to repeat last year‟s performance, as almost all of last year‟s outstanding team
are unavailable. But that is as it should be, and there is no doubt that this
year‟s team will put in a performance they can be proud of.

     News which will I hope be of great interest to Association members is that
the London Borough of Hillingdon has voted to confer Freedom of Entry to the
Borough to the Squadron. The grounds for that vote reflect the service of the
Middlesex Yeomanry to the Borough of Hillingdon over more than 200 years, and
therefore the serving members of the Squadron are about to receive a privilege
earned in large part by former members, for which we are profoundly grateful.
The conferment ceremony is expected to take place during the evening of
Monday 23rd April, and as more details emerge they will be passed on to the
Association. In due course, the Squadron will exercise the Freedom of Entry
with a full-scale parade.

      The Squadron values its links with the Association enormously, and I am
particularly pleased to be able to indicate that we intend to repeat the very
successful Summer Shoot this year.          The date is to be confirmed, but
provisionally we intend to go for 28 July, and it would be excellent if there could
be a strong turnout from the Association for this full-bore live firing opportunity.

     This will be my last report for the Newsletter, as I hand over command of
the Squadron at the end of April. Whilst there are real challenges now facing
the TA in general and the Squadron in particular, when one views what has
happened to the Middlesex Yeomanry over its distinguished history, most of
what we are going through now we have gone through before in slightly different
ways.

Association Band Report

Maj (Retd) Dusty Miller writes that the band continues to improve musically and
the regular attendance is now a steady 25-30 at rehearsals. Both the Band -
Master Michael Robinson and the Band Secretary Ron Keevil work hard to keep
up the standards expected of the Middlesex Yeomanry. Although some of the
musicians have no military background, every effort is made for a smart turnout.
Our thanks to Don Grocott and his wife Trish, for their continued support.

Band engagements to date:

Sat 9th June – Hampton Carnival (Arena Band)
Sun 10th June – Dieppe (France) concert is cancelled
Sat 14th Jul – Star & Garter Home, Richmond, at 1400 hours
Sun 21st Oct – Church Band for Lafone Day (provisional)
Sun 9th Dec – Christmas Concert, White House, The Avenue, Hampton

Donations and cheques should be made payable to “The Middlesex Yeomanry
Band” and sent to Maj (Retd) Ron Miller, whose address is at the back of the
newsletter.


Trip to Bletchley Park

Roger Marson is keen to organize a Sunday outing to Bletchley Park, the home of
wartime cryptography, and of the famous Enigma code-breaking. He told the
recent Association meeting that costs will be a maximum of £10 each for a guided
tour, with additional train fares. If sufficient are interested, Roy will tell you
that group bookings can be made for the train journey from London, greatly
reducing the travel costs (as little as £7 return per person, depending on
numbers). Bletchley station is only a few hundred yards from the centre. Car
parking is available for those who would wish to travel independently. The tour
would last a maximum of 4 hours and there is a cafeteria and bar, for
refreshments. Currently, the most agreeable date with the Squadron and the
Association, is Sunday 23rd June. Please contact Roger on 0208 998 2365 or


                                       -7-
0791 765 2365 for further information, or at rogermarson@tc24.net . Both Roger
and I have been before, and can heartily recommend it is a good day out.




Editor’s notes / Distribution of the Association Newsletter.

New postal regulations in respect of the size and weight of envelopes means the
Association must be careful not to exceed the weight rules, by producing a
Newsletter that is too bulky. Printing will be in A4 if possible. I appreciate the
newsletter is in quite small print in A5.

With the World Wide Web and the Internet providing faster and quicker cost-
effective delivery of information, if any member of the association would like
their Newsletter transmitted in electronic format, may I ask them to let the
Membership Secretary know (if they have not already done so) and he will
ensure this happens. I acknowledge those who have already contacted either of
us and confirmed their willingness although they may still receive a paper copy
until the membership list is amended. If you receive a printed copy but would
favour an electronic copy, then please Email the membership secretary at
GRAHAM.K1@sky.com or to me at james.bole@ntlworld.com.

I will also be happy to produce this newsletter in large print if any Association or
Squadron members suffer with diminished vision.

Middlesex Yeomanry Association website

Graham Kneafsey writes that the Association website has been extremely
popular. The addition of a web counter has had limited success because of
software problems, but it initially showed that the website has had several
hundred „hits‟ since the New Year and a number of past members of the
Middlesex Yeomanry, past and present, have left their details, and that a couple
of new members have joined as a result of finding the website. Graham is
updating it regularly. It is hoped that as much of the history of the Middlesex
yeomanry, and back-issues of the Newsletter, will be added when time allows.
However, a new standing order form will be available shortly, for those who
would wish to pay their annual subscriptions without worry (it is also on Page
15). The website can be viewed at;

News of past members

                            Last Post and Reveille

LtCol. Simon Beazley 1922 – 2007.

       It is with regret that we report the passing of LtCol Simon Beazley, who
passed away peacefully on 5th January. He was a former soldier with the Royal
Welch Fusiliers before joining the Welsh Guards and became a veteran of The
Burma Campaign. He was commissioned into the Royal Corps of Signals,
eventually becoming Commanding Officer of the Middlesex Yeomanry,
overseeing the amalgamation of the 40th and 47th Regiment. He was a divorce
solicitor and in his second career and, after retiring from the TA, became an
active and enthusiastic member of the Association before finally becoming
President. Simon regularly attended the Squadron‟s Summer Camps both in
England and abroad, and regularly attended the Lafone dinner and subsequent
parades, as well as the prize-giving of the Pearson Shoot.

       Although he had recently asked to step down from the Presidency because
of ill-health, Simon continued to take an interest in both the Association and the
Squadron.

     It was not just his stature that set him above others, but his personality,
sharp wit and desire to help others in both the Squadron and the Association.
The Honorary. Colonel, Lt Col Don Grocott and Hon. Secretary Andrew Bridges
attended the funeral in Bath on behalf of the Association, and Maj. (Retd) Dusty
Miller on behalf of the Band. The Honorary Colonel gave the eulogy and it is
transcribed below

     Simon is survived by his wife Jennifer, his 4 children and 4 grand-children.
On behalf of the Association, we send our condolences to his family




                                        -9-
      LIEUTENANT COLONEL SIMON BEAZLEY – EULOGY 15 JANUARY 2007

Simon was a loving husband, a devoted and immensely proud father, a grandfather
enormously loved by his grandchildren, a soldier, a firm and respected officer, a lawyer, a
country gentleman and much more beside.

I knew him for only a relatively small part of his eighty four years when he was the President
of the Middlesex Yeomanry Association. It was long enough for me to learn that he was a good
friend, a clear thinker with robust views, had a delightful sense of humour and, above all, a
gentleman.

If you could see him now – and I mean this quite literally – you would see him in a pair of very
smart green cord trousers, a splendid tweed sport coat, a proper Viyella shirt and, of course, a
Middlesex Yeomanry tie. Would any of us have expected anything else of this gentle man? I
think not. Certainly from the limited research I have conducted since Jennifer asked me to
give this eulogy, everyone I have spoken with has echoed the epithets with which I opened:
firm, fair, respected…

There would not be two hussars from the serving squadron, the Squadron Commander, a
trumpeter from the Royal Corps of Signals and many military friends – several wearing the
same tie as Simon – here today were it not that, in many ways, Simon was pre-eminently a
soldier. I think that is how he thought of himself. His military training – started with the
Royal Welch Fusiliers and honed with Welsh Guards – gave him a cast of mind that never left
him. That he was commissioned into The Royal Corps of Signals and progressed to command
the Middlesex Yeomanry when it was a regiment is something to which I will return. But I
want now to show how his military disposition informed the conduct of his civilian life.

Many of you will know that Simon was a litigation lawyer who specialized in divorce. His
practice was mainly acting for the wives - and he had a number of high profile cases. One of
his partners, Chris Wright, from that part of Simon‟s world, tells me that the women for whom
Simon acted, saw him as the strong uncle upon whom they could totally rely. Because Chris
still acts for a number of Simon‟s divorced clients he knows that they held him in the highest
regard and always ask after him. One of his old clients to whom Chris spoke the other day
asked after Simon and recalled that at any early stage of her divorce, Simon went to see her
and she misunderstood the time he was to arrive. He turned up at 8 in the morning when she
was still in bed. She felt that Simon considered this was rather slack and that she should
have been up and doing by that time. That is certainly the Simon I knew. A man who set
high standards which he kept himself.

Incidentally, Robert Lloyd Davis, who was articled to Simon and is here today, observed that
the staff in the litigation department sometimes felt that “they were on the parade ground
when they had to report on the matters they were dealing with for Simon, but he was always

                                              - 10 -
very straight forward and everyone had a huge respect for him. Underneath the slightly
forbidding military exterior he was a kindly man with a good sense of humour”.

It is possible that the most exciting part of Simon‟s military career was in the latter part of the
Second World War. In 1944 Simon was in West Africa as a Brigade Signals Officer. An officer
in the 6th Nigerian Battalion, Stuart Aikman now living in New Zealand who became a life-
long chum of Simon‟s, recalls that they had no wireless and that he was much relieved when a
chap crawled out of the bush with a line (our word for a wire for telephone communication).
This chap was the Simon who made sure things happened. Later, having gone with the West
Africa Division – with the Frontier Force - through India to Burma, Stuart recalls that they
relied on air supply for everything – food, ammunition and so on. They had to find suitable
locations for airdrops – flat, open country – and Simon, as i/c communications, never failed to
keep comms open so that they went short of nothing. Quite a lot of derring-do of which those
who knew Simon later learned little from him.

Demob was decided on a simple number: your age plus the number of year‟s service. Simon‟s
came up. Later he joined 16 Airborne Signal Regiment. Here I rely on Ted Scarlett, a fellow
Middlesex Yeoman, for the detail. It is, I am sure, accurate. Ted always is. A good job since
the Data Protection Act precludes Regimental Headquarters from access to Military Records
except through the enquiry of a close member of the family and some five weeks „processing
time‟. That is exactly the sort of arcane bureaucratic nonsense that would have amused
Simon. Anyway, Simon commanded a troop of 80 men most of whom were National
Servicemen serving their three years in the TA before they were „released‟. It was a rather
different TA in those days. Simon commanded parachutists without himself being parachute
trained [In fact Simon was injured in a training jump from a balloon and was never medically
cleared to jump again]. That he managed such command is a testament to his Officer
qualities. These certainly marked him out for promotion and, after commanding a squadron
for a while, he became CO of 40 Signal Regiment. It was a time of change for the TA and
Simon is best remembered for the excellent way he managed the „professionalisation‟ of the
soldiers and officers under his command. Peter Lewin, who knew him well then, described the
“changed mood from play to efficient activity”. Simon took over command from Colonel Jumbo
Collins whom many here may recall – a very different character who was, it is certain, just the
man for the „play‟. Peter Lewin‟s words: “We swanned around in 15 hundredweight wireless
trucks playing at Phantom Signals and – when money allowed – spent time on the ranges”.
No change there then. Anyway, Simon set a firm standard and managed both the
amalgamation with 47 Signal Regiment and the mood change. That did not deny some social
fun. Peter Lewin married when Simon was the CO. The wedding was made the brighter by
his bride wearing a tiara. The tiara was on loan from Jennifer. It was given to her by Simon‟s
mother only after Jenny had established that her marriage to Simon was „on course‟ after a
year. It is rather typical of Simon to have found a pretty and intelligent girl who could pass
the tiara test and be persuaded her to marry him. By the way, Simon and Jennie celebrated
their Golden Wedding last year.

The social aspects of command were well done as you would expect with the charming
combination of Jennie and Simon making it all happen. Simon Crowe, who served in the
regiment then, recalled to me that “Simon is remembered with great respect and affection by
those who served with him in the Middlesex Yeomanry. He was extremely efficient while being
kindly and considerate of others. There were times when relaxation took over from military
training. Such a time was when Simon (the CO) and fellow officers attended the Royal Court
Theatre Club, just up the Kings Road in Chelsea from the Duke of York‟s HQ where the
                                               - 11 -
Regiment was based. On one occasion there was dancing at the Club and some entertainment
from its then owner, Clement Freud, with his lugubrious dry wit.” Another occasion recalled
was a thoroughly enjoyable party which Simon and Jennifer gave at their lovely house near
Leatherhead. (Simon Crowe advised me “better check that location with Jennifer - it was such
a good party that I cannot remember exactly where it was!”).During this time the Middlesex
Yeomanry Band was very much in mind. It still is, by the way.

Anyway, Major Ron Miller who is here in the present band outfit, was the Drum Major and
recalls that Simon, as CO, noticed that one of the bandsmen had mislaid his military hat and
replaced it with a civilian one of an appropriate green colour. Simon‟s eye for detail resulted
in the following question: “Drum Major, is the band to parade or is it off to play golf?”

It was soon after this that Simon handed over command and retired from the TA. Despite
long and valiant service, he had not, apparently, spent sufficient time to earn his Territorial
Decoration – the TD. It is delightfully typical of Simon that he was rather proud not to have a
TD…

He was an active member of the Middlesex Yeomanry Association taking over the Presidency
from Sir John Prideaux. Simon brought to the Old Comrades‟ Association the same
thoroughness that had characterized everything else that he did. One of his great
achievements perfectly combined soldier and lawyer: he managed to sort out the trusts which
held the Association‟s property – principally silver and grand accoutrements – and made
arrangements with the Royal Signals Museum to house some of it and for the rest to be
managed at the serving squadron‟s TA Centre. Incidentally, it was during this time that the
squadron returned to Uxbridge where the Middlesex Yeomanry had been raised in 1797. The
opening of the new TA Centre was conducted by the Princess Royal with Simon representing
the Association.

I am certain that there is much more to tell of Lieutenant Colonel Simon Beazley and that I
have only touched the surface. But one easily reached conclusion is that he was a seriously
good egg. We shall all miss him.

Sidney M ‘Sambo’ Coombes 1928 – 2006

      Sambo was called up for National Service in 1947 and served with the
Royal Corps of Signals as a Lineman in Austria, which he really enjoyed. On
leaving the army in ‟49, he joined the Middlesex Yeomanry, then at the Duke of
York‟s Barracks in Chelsea, the regiment then part of 16 Airborne Division. In
1953 Sambo had the honour of being the only TA Signalman to receive the
Coronation Medal. Sambo rose to the rank of Sgt of the Line Troop but with the
reduction of the TA, he became part of 44 Parachute Brigade (305) Signal
Squadron, thereby keeping his red beret.



                                             - 12 -
       He is remembered as a highly efficient, reliable, popular and genial
member of the Squadron. In 1956, during parachute training jumps from a
balloon at Wormwood Scrubs, Sambo suffered serious hip and leg injuries. He
left the TA in 1968 and went out with a bang on his last night when he let of a
thunder-flash, which caused temporary mayhem and panic.

     Sambo worked for the GPO for 44 years, rising from boy labourer to become
Assistant Executive Engineer, and receiving the Imperial Service Medal from
BT.

      Sadly Sambo passed away on 29th November last year, after several
operations to improve his hip. He leaves his wife Betty, 3 sons and a daughter,
and several grand-children. A most moving service of thanksgiving for Sambo‟s
life was held on 12th December at Aldershot Crematorium. Those attending
included Maj. (Retd) Dusty Miller, on behalf of the Royal Signals Association,
Standard Bearer Harry Ruff and a dozen member of the branch of which Sambo
had been an enthusiastic member. Members of the Association including 10
former members of 305 Squadron also attended. Musician Jim Norris, trumpeter
of the Middlesex Yeomanry band played the Cavalry version of the Last Post and
Reveille.

                                                              Simon Crowe

On behalf of the Association, we send our condolences to his family

Kenneth Satchel

     Kenneth, in his 99th year. It is hoped an obituary will follow.

Norman Bullough

      Norman passed on in February. Norman was enlisted into National
Service 1950 – 52, then joined the Middlesex Yeomanry with 16 Airborne
Division Signal Regiment and remained with us before moving in the early
1960‟s to join a signal unit in the Midlands. We send our condolences.
