    He was a regular at The Western Games (CMPicon). Always had a kind word to all and very approachable. He will be missed.

    Even from a Colonial I found his stuff NBS and upfront spot on and good value, sadly he is marching to a different tune now.
    I can just imaging him at the pearly gates "F - christ sake St Peter straighten your wings pick up that halo if your gunna greet me look half decent, now where is the heck is my cloud......?"
    Gone but not forgotten "Gunny"

    One of the very few celebrities I've ever met and a squared away Gentleman to boot.

    I was still at school when FMJ came out. The Hue city battle scenes were filmed about a mile away from my home, just east of London UKicon at the derelict Beckton gas works site. It was a big thing for us kids sneaking around watching the troops, tanks and imported palm trees, we all hoped to find a "lost" M16icon after filming ended. We all had Gunny Ermey's lines memorised by heart, we thought he was the best thing in that film, we'd never heard sentences strung together like that before! Our poor parents and teachers had to deal with Gunnys lines for a good couple of years!......RIP Gunny
