Sad to announce that Ernie (C Sqr, 23rd Hussars) has left us, aged 99. Ernest Slarks - The Tank Museum I had the great pleasure in meeting Ernie at one of the 23H reunions in Bridlington. Top bloke, great ambassador for veterans in general and 23H in particular. He got around! Aldershot, 1944. C Sqr 23rd Hussars. Ernie, top right, my Dad, Frank Grimshaw, bottom left. Thanks for everything, Ernie.
