Sgt Kinnear's entry for the Gulf war is of particular interest to me because I am in the early stages of trying to identify all war graves and memorial entries for RAPC and it's antecedent corps.
I will have to do some research but Sgt Kinnear will be one of the last (if not THE last) RAPC to die in service because the RAPC ceased to exist on 1st April 1992 on formation of the Adjutant General's Corps.

I am quite happy to update the information on Donald Kinnear - Adam??
