Duty Done – BRIG Lou Brumfield

The late Brigadier Ivan `Lou’ Brumfield and wife Dulcie.

Today I pass on some very sad news … At approximately 3:00pm on Wednesday, 23rd of September, Brigadier Ivan (Lou) Brumfield CBE, DSO (Rtd) passed away peacefully. As Commanding Officer of the 1RAR Group in Vietnam 1965 he was highly respected as a leader of men in combat. That respect continued right up to now and will remain forever. Lou involved himself in the happening of the ‘old and bold’ and maintained a strong and genuine interest in the activities of the men of his 1RAR Group. With his death it brings about the end of an era, he will be greatly missed from within our ranks.

 

2507 Brigadier Ivan (Lou) Brumfield CBE, DSO (Rtd)

23rd Sept 1927 – 26th Sept 2013

May he rest in eternal peace.

Lest We Forget

 Farewell 'Lou' Brumfield
