Nath was my Section Commander in A coy during the Iraq invasion in 03′ and my Platoon Sergeant in snipers in Afghan 06′, both very poignant times in my life and career as a young soldier.
I remember in Iraq when we were out on the ground, Nath would always be point man. I was lead scout but Nath always walked point because he knew that if there were any nasty surprises it would be himself that would cop it and not his blokes. This was typical of Nath; putting the welfare of his Toms before his own safety and never asking something of someone that he wasn’t prepared to ‘roll his sleeves up’ for and do himself.He was a big influence in my younger years. He showed me what it meant to be a good soldier, good leader and most importantly a good man.
A small man with a big presence. I know he is leaving a massive hole in peoples lives and I send my heavy condolences to Kathy and the family, I can’t imagine what you’re going through right now.
The world is a better place for having been graced with the life on Nath Davies, Utrinque Paratus brother.
