    Lt Col Beeby

    When i took over command of 23 IDSR on 14 Feb 2001, i noticed that the first name on the list of erstwhile COs was that of Lt Col Beeby. As was customary, i sent all the past COs including him a DO letter, giving them an update of the unit, asking for a snap of theirs for the rogues gallery and seeking their blessings. Many COs did not even acknowledge ny DO, but I still remember the touching reply i got from him - " -----. I am in no position to get a snap of mine taken but wish the unit well. I remember, that when i was raisng the unit, we had hardly any regimental funds. Please accept a token amount of 100 dollars (Chq enclosed) towards the regimental fund --------".
    Speaks volumes about his character.
    May his soul rest in peace.
