Thank you for visiting. Can you help please? I am looking for any and all information about

Major Derek Andre Alton-Nagel of the Royal Horse Artillery. A superb rider by all accounts. Born 1919. Died before 1989. (Not Derec Marie Alton-Nagle as previously thought) He was the "Training Major" at the Northumbrian Universities Officer Training Corps during the years 1964 - 1967;  we do not know what his actual full tenure of NUOTC service was, but he was certainly there both prior to and after those years.  He was extremely supportive and jolly, but, as befitted his rank, certainly had a tough side.  He must have found it difficult at times dealing with 'unruly' university students and having to play 'second fiddle' to a Commanding Officer who was a Durham University professor (Lt. Col. Derek Bargrave-Weaver) who, though a pleasant enough fellow, was not of the stuff of leaders. His nickname for his wife was "Pooh".   Son of Frederick Alton-Nagel of Tennessee who married Alice nee Studdert (of the Family Studdert of Clonderlaw). She was related to the Studdert family which owned Bunratty Castle, Bunratty which is near Kenmare, on the N18 on the Shannon Estuary in Co Clare. 6 1/2 miles from Shannon airport.

There may be a Frederick Alton Nagel in the Florida death index 1980-89 ..... any connection??

Oh and here is another Alton Nagel extracted from the Tampa Tribune of  13 March 2005:
NAGEL, Mark Borden, 69, of Land O'Lakes, Fla., passed away Saturday, March 5, 2005 in Dade City under the care of Hernando- Pasco Hospice after a short illness. He was born February 8, 1936, in New Haven, Conn. to Wayn Alton Nagel and Barbara Imogene Ulrich Nagel. He grew up in Milford, Conn., graduating from Milford High School in 1954. He graduated from Millikin University in Decatur, Ill., in 1958 and lived in Illinois for many years before he retired and settled to Florida, where he spent his remaining years. He was a wonderful brother and friend, and will be missed by all. He is survived by five children,  Scott, Neal, Susan, Peter and Paul; one brother, Chris Nagel; and two sisters, Leslie Ann Stalker and Esther Brasmer. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in his memory to Hernando-Pasco Hospice, 7066 Fort King Road, Zephyrhills, FL 33541.
