Sammy Degei
Served in 249 Signal Squadron (FARELF) 1967 to 1969

Having met up with Alex Kubu at Tom Thornton's funeral I was informed of the passing of Sam Degei who retired back home to Fiji. Alex said that Sams' son telephoned him of his passing approx 10 days ago.
Sam served in 30 Signal Regiment; 249 Signal Squadron (FARELF); 7 Signal Regiment and I believe finished his service with either a Cadet Force or TA unit in London.
Sam, a very likeable character, will be missed by whoever came into contact with him.

  I knew Sam very well from his 249 days, he served with me in Long Nok Tah (Crown project) in Thailand. He was a very likeable member of the Corps and he will be sadly missed by all who knew him. Good bye Sam. From: Joe Gibson
