John Sharpe


It is with great regret that I have been informed of the death of John Sharpe on the 1st of November.  It is expected that the funeral will be held near Huddersfield but will be confirmed as soon as details are known.

John, also known as “Panyou” – for obvious reasons to those who knew him…… served with the 1st Bn and served in Hong Kong and Ballykelly and all points between.


Condolences may be sent to his son Adam –


Adam is trying to find some stories and information regarding John’s life in the ‘Dukes’ – if those who remember John, particularly his closer friends, could contact Adam directly with any anecdotes – he would appreciate it greatly.


Thanking you in anticipation of your help.
