Royal Gazette, 29 Sept 2003 [cached]
And his brother John Gilbert, who served as Clerk to the Legislature for 14 years until 1989 also paid tribute to the career army man."Yes, it is a very sad time," he told The Royal Gazette from British Columbia, where he is currently on holiday."He has been ill for quite some time, but these things always come as a shock when they do happen.His career was an army one but even after the war he was still pretty hectic."He was staying in the St. David's Hotel in Palestine when it was blown up and he also served in Malaya and Cyprus."But he was proud to be involved with Bermuda and he always took a terrific interest in the Bermuda Regiment and certainly when anyone from the Island went over for training in Britain he would always take them under his wing."He has many, many friends here and I am sure a lot of people will be saddened to hear he has passed away.He led a very full life and will be greatly missed."Maj. Gen.Gilbert became a visible figure in the Bermuda community in 1977 when he was invited to lead a Board of Inquiry on the force commitments and manpower requirements of the Bermuda Regiment.This arose out of severe discipline problems in the Regiment during a camp held in Barbados.The need to re-structure was further underlined by the riots of that year.Almost all of his recommendations, which included upgrading in numbers and facilities, closer ties with the Police, a process of Bermudianisation and the introduction of women into the Force, were accepted.On his annual visits back to Bermuda, Gen.Gilbert had continue to call in on Warwick Camp but never in an official capacity.His last visit was last year as he was too ill to make the journey in 2003.As well as continuing to maintain an involvement with the Regiment, he also contributed to the World War II exhibition at the Maritime Museum, where he not only offered advice and supplied information but also donated some artefacts.Former commanding officer of the Bermuda Regiment Gavin Shorto, when told by this paper of the news of the demise of Maj.Gen.Gilbert, said: "This is very sad news.
Gilbert had an enormous influence on the shape of the modern Bermuda Regiment.He was asked to write a report on the way the Regiment was constituted and trained after riots in 1977.His report resulted in the Regiment being increased from, I think it was, 460 all ranks to 700.It resulted in the Regiment forming a training company to do nothing but train recruits, and a support company to provide support services to the Rifle Companies."It resulted in great stress being laid on NCOs and officers getting the best training available, whether that was training here in Bermuda, on secondment overseas or more formal training at some of the best military schools and colleges in the world."It resulted in the Camp and the equipment we used being modernised as never before.His was, in short, a report that resulted in Bermuda getting serious about having a Regiment."Maj. Gen.Gilbert kept in close touch with Warwick Camp, popping in every time he happened to be on the Island.
