Pat, so many laughs, so many scrapes, some people fall in **** and end up smelling of roses, but Pat would fall in roses and end up smelling of ..... Well smelling of Swifty!

Nothing was ever his fault but that just made it more funny - will be missed by many and remembered by even more

Pat and Horace together - now that will be a mess

Sad day, tragic accident!!!. Pat will be missed by a great many people who had the privilege to know him and inadvertently been part of his antics and humour, Lovely bloke, always smiling. I will always have endearing lasting comical memories of Pat ranting and raving when the sh** hit the fan on so so so  many occasions, and as Rossy has already stated, "it was never Pats fault". He had the best set of velcro tapes in the battalion!!! Take care mate and god bless you.

It has now been confirmed by the Hospital Report. Pat's sudden departure was a tragic accident. A cigarette not completely extinguished fell on to the settee whilst Pat slept. Pat passed away in his sleep peacefully from smoke inhalation. RIP Pat. Truly missed. Never to be forgotten.

Swifty, so sad to read, that you are at the re-org. lots of crazy memories with you, all of us who went on our Norway trips from Dover, can never forget your good "Durch" skiing, and the humble humour that you gave to us daily. Sitting up through the nights singing songs in our BV was so funny, You will be missed by all chosen man That worked with you. God bless your family and friends at this tough time.RIP Pat Swift....
