My name is Maureen Slough and I found this website whilst surfing the web. It's a great site and that memorials are being added on this site of people who have passed on as it's good to remember our loved ones. I remember my loved ones who have passed on and been an inspiration in my life and I know we will meet again some day. I live in Ireland with my daughter Megan but am originally from Reading, Berkshire but have been living in Ireland for 40 years. It great that there are still lots of people out there who remember my deceased brother Fred who died 29 years ago aged only 19 years in the Falklands War. Unfortunately, I didn't get to pay my respects to my one and only full sibling due to my father who basically disregarded me my life. Francis is missed by his family in UK and in Ireland. I hope soon to add some photographs of Fred on this site. Maureen Slough|

Joined up with Fred, first meeting him at the Reading Army careers office on Market Street, Reading! Soon to be enlisted in the Junior Leaders Regiment and have the same regimental number but one digit, Fred like myself was badged to the Royal military Police! Fred later re badged to The Parachute Regiment and was later engaged in the Falklands conflict. Many of the lads he knew from JLR soon learnt of his death and were deeply shocked by the news! Since then I have visited his locally placed brass plaque situated in the rather fitting memorial hall in Sonning Common village. As I spoke to the memorial hall cleaner who was doing a sterling job with her Brasso, she remembered Fred and his family who lived just around the corner! He is also remembered at a local Navel college which has a memorial dedicated to the Falkland's conflict. Fred's name is located inside the chapel! . His name once again lives on at the National Arboretum in Staffordshire. So a day after his death in 1982,34years ago I along with many others think of Fred 'Muscles' Slough and think what a great bloke he was, what would he have been doing today and what would he have achieved! Rest in Peace our friend for one day when we meet again we shall carry on as we left off...young soldiers having fun!! God bless you x

Had the pleasure of serving with Fred in Junior Leaders from 1979 - 1980. Fred was an excellent guy, totally genuine and liked by all. Although small in stature he was extremely fit and boxing was one of his passions, which was clearly evident as he had muscles on muscles. His memory certainly lives on and Fred's name is often mentioned by former colleagues. RIP
Hi would you like me to transfer ownership of your brothers memorial to you?

My husband served in the Army during the Falklands, so it is my pleasure to remember your dear brother.
