The Royal New Zealand Artillery
It is with much regret I advise that Lt Col Jim Heard passed away suddenly on December 15, 2019 while on holiday in South Africa.
Rest in Peace Jim.
Thank you for your service.
They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
WE STAND ON THE SHOULDERS OF GIANTS
LEST WE FORGET
