Many of those who served with the 1RAR Group during 1965-66 will remember well the OC of 3 Field Troop RAE, Sandy MacGregor.
Yesterday, Sandra MacGregor, Sandy MacGregor’s wife, advised as follows.
Unfortunately, this afternoon, Sandy lost his balance and had a fall. He is now in hospital and will be there for a while. His head and arm were bleeding, but worst of all he broke his hip. He was in such agony – I could see it on his face. The hospital now has him on extremely strong pain killers, including morphine. He now must have a hip replacement and my greatest fear is that he will have to go off his blood thinners to have the operation. Going off his blood thinners for too long was what caused him to have his stroke almost 2 years ago.
Just when I thought I could breathe a sigh of relief because he was in the same hospital only yesterday having a prostate biopsy and had to go off his blood thinners for a few days.
Could you please pass this on to the other Sappers?
Please join me in wishing Sandy a speedy recovery.
