Philip (Dusty) Miller

 It is with deep sadness, anda profound sense of loss, that I share with you all the passing of my dear friend and mentor, Philip (Dusty) Miller, who died peacefully this evening (27th December 2100hrs) at Frome Community Hospital. Phil had been unwell for some time now, spending a couple of months in Weston super Mare and Taunton general hospitals and more recently the Frome Community hospital where he received outstanding care and attention from the staff.

During his time at Frome, he bravely fought his ailments and conducted himself with great dignity and courage, whilst family and friends made daily trips to be at his side. Phil has a vast circle of friends and colleagues and is a legend within the Regimental Association, dedicating over 30 years of service, at all levels; his departure will leave a huge void.

There will be a service notification and a detailed obituary produced later when all details are received. Our thoughts and prayers are now with his beloved wife Sonia, his two sons David and Richard and the rest of his family and friends. “By our deeds, we are known

  1. From the Association Chairman
    Association Chairman tribute;

    Whilst I wasn’t privileged to have served with Phil Miller, he has always been driving force within the Regimental Association, be that for the Glosters or the RGBW Associations. My first contact with him was through the impressive Imjin Lunches that the Somerset Branch held annually attracting attendances from branches from around the three counties and veterans from other Arms and Services. Later, as I became more involved in the management of the Association ,I was impressed by the website he created for his regimental veterans and constantly referred to it to keep abreast of the activities of that part of the Association. Those of you who knew Phil, better than I did, will not be surprised that he carried the same dedication and professionalism into another of his passions, canal longboats.

    Phil MIller set and maintained high standards. We will miss his drive, enthusiasm and passion and I echo Martin Talling’s sentiment in sending Sonia, David and Richard and the Family everyone’s condolences.
