RIP Mark Taff Langley

Devastated at the news I've heard. Totally shocked this is absurd The passing of a Welsh legend Proud to have served my butty friend. He started his long career As a proud Welsh infanteer He then transferred to the Corps His knowledge he used thats for sure I first met taff in the Adriatic In a place we all called FRY Former Republic of Yugoslavia For those that don't know why Taff was known to do silly things But one that comes to mind Being pumped up a scam 12 Blind just leading the blind He earned a commendation whilst in Afghanistan As multiple commander he looked after every man A real genuine gentle man who liked a practical joke His favourite tipple was vodka and coke The next verse is for you Reading from above I hope it hits a chord baloo Also for those that you love Gwneud hyn yn Gymraeg i chi er fy mod i'n teimlo'n las eich calon oedd calon y ddraig Gymreig chwedl a pharagon Doing this in welsh for you even though i'm feeling blue your heart was that of the welsh dragon a legend and a paragon I apologize now if my grammar is wrong Like butty would say you f*****g mong When you served you were a "RELAY" Not one if gods chosen what can I say The black dog was on his shoulder I know It's a crap place to be I'm gutted brother soldier You didn't shout out to me My condolences to the family The brotherhood does feel your pain R.I.P Brother Mark Langley Until we meet again So save all of us a seat at the bar. With Tony, Mac, Ange, to name but a few. You have left behind your family and friends We all miss you!!!!
