I know not what to say! Every time I met Mr Paul he ALWAYS had kind words, a great smile, and an even better disposition for Pipers of the regiment. I will never forget his harsh raspy voice and his regimental demeanor. He was truly born to be a Sergent Major. Good man, great soul. Excellent brother in arms.
