My enduring memory of him is in the old Mess bar at Mill Hill, climbing onto the bar, turning his back to the crowd & performing a back somersault, to land on his feet in their midst!What a glorious & memorable character, who we all remember with deep affection.He enjoyed playing golf and watching rugby – from his local club – Rochdale – to internationals and to league games at his hometown Wigan.He died on 25 May after a long and painful illness, which he bore with courage and his brave good humour.He retired to Highcliffe with his wife Doris of more than 50 years where they enjoyed many happy times together. He thoroughly enjoyed his time with his Army friends & would look forward to his ccouple of weeks each year back in uniform.Of course it could have been the camaraderie in the mess away from home that had most appeal – Mike Bartlett (Don’s son) Don was ever the best of company at any event and in any circumstance.Ken was born in Wigan in November 1938 and had two hugely successful careers both which involved things of import to him – people and the post. They benefited from it by enjoying themselves – having a good time – or learning and being better fitted for their jobs.He was a huge character who easily filled a room – and often filled a bar!
He was always the centre of any fun, good times, good humour or prank.At the time Ken was Director and General Manager Royal Mail South Wales and South West.This included responsibility for the operation of one ninth of Royal Mail – plus the added difficulty of severe industrial relations issues in a couple of his areas.Ken did not shy away from the task of taking the Group from the comfort and support of Mill Hill and its postal empathy to the unknown that was Grantham, and being part of a very large TA organisation.At the same time he had to downsize the Group, from four to three Regiments and take manning from 75 officers and 750 soldiers to 55 and around 550 – and improve military skills!
