We are so saddened to hear of Lady Paulines death and our thoughts and prayers go out to General Robert and the rest of the family. I met him at the 2012 reunion where we talked about our Celle days in the early 70's and he mentioned that Lady Pauline was not well. Condolences to all at this sad time.

I am saddened by the news of Lady Pascoe's fight with cancer has come to an end.  My sincere condolences to General Sir Robert Pascoe and his family. Like most of our great officers, they had great ladies supporting them.
