Having had the opportunity to meet WO Birt this past summer, I can say that his loss truly is a great loss. My condolences to his family. RIP, Warrant.
I served with Al a few times over the years.... This is sad news indeed.  Any details released on the "how" of it?  Al was one of the good guys, Rest in Peace, my friend.  :salute:
Sorry to hear of his passing. I knew Mason's mother and did Mason's recruit medical. RIP  :cdn:  :salute:
Its a tough year for the Sappers, sorry to hear of another loss. I served with Birt at 22Fd Sqn, and always enjoyed a laugh with him.
Chimo Brother Beaver,
