I first met Clyde shortly after arriving in Cornwallis, summer 1989 when he gave us his first Pl Comd's..."motivational speech"  ;D.  IIRC, he gave damn good ones, too.

Years passed and I was on a tasking...walked into the WOs and Sgts mess, saw him a few feet away from the side and...froze in place.  My first thought was something like "oh shit" and the next one was likely "f&&k I hope all my pockets are done up!". 

I was fortunate on that tasking to get to know Clyde and get some advice and mentoring from him on the do's and don'ts on what being a Snr NCO, Warrant Officer etc is all about.  He was a real solid, down to earth guy.

RIP  :salute:

I can't remember if it was in Germany or Gagetown when I first met him when I was a kid.  He was certainly an imposing individual.

RIP Clyde.
