1. You and Nick came to dinner with David and me at our house in Woolwich. Nick got a bit emotional and wrote on a scrap of paper that he formally left his worldly goods to Anne Clendinning, signed it and placed it behind the clock on the mantle piece.

  2. Nick and I met on National Service in December 1955 and although recent years our contact was less frequent his life remains a part of my life for I shall always be grateful

  3. On his visits to the Bannerman of Coval Gardens East Sheen in the early 70’s Nick bought a dash of glamour and of course much laughter to proceedings…. i remember sports cars and beautiful pink shirts and riskee stories.
    A particular memory is us all watching an american film on the telly when the romantic lead casually flicked his jacket over his shoulder …Nick said
    earnestly ’Girls … you must never trust a man that does that with his jacket’ …. we thought this was an absolute hoot and i have never forgotten his sage advice! A generous life enhancer and mum, his cousin Prue adored him. Love to all

    General Nick, as I used to call you – a man full of action! When I looked back on the short time I knew you and the way you touched the lives of many people that came across you with your love, your soft words of encouragement, your advice, jokes and help in any way you could, has really left a good legacy for your special wife Annie, the children and the generations to come. You left a big hole in the heart of your loved ones in which only God can fill.
    That leads to 1Thessalonians 4 – when a believer goes to be with Jesus, we feel the loss personally, but the Word tells us that we do not grieve like those who have no hope, as we know that one day, we will be reunited. We also know that in times of grief and loss, God’s love and His word sustains us and helps to mend broken hearts. I pray for God to continue ministering to your dear wife, children, and the rest of the family.
    I honor and cherish your memory, Nick! May your spirit live on forever in our hearts and souls. You are gone but never forgotten.”

    Nick, you lived a wonderfully joyful life, therefore your family celebrate that life as you would have wanted, rather than lament your death.

    To Annie, the children and the family of Nick, I pray for God’s message to be with you, from the book of Deuteronomy 31:6, “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you; He will not leave you or forsake you.” Therefore at this difficult time and beyond, I pray that the Lord shall go before you and shall not leave or forsake anyone of you in Jesus, Amen
