In Memoriam
  William Symers Stitt  
Intelligence Corps
Died 6th. June 1975.
Major William (Bill) Stitt was commissioned into the R. Innisks as a 2/Lt on 6th. Aug 54 and subsequently transferred to the Intelligence Corps as one of ‘The First 100’. He served the Intelligence Corps loyally and faithfully in Germany, Cyprus and the United Kingdom until his sad death in Millbank Hospital on 6th. June 1975 after a long illness. Bill Stitt was a kind and gentle officer who was liked and respected by all who knew him. He would go out of his way to help those in need. His cheerful nature and unfailing sense of humour particularly endeared him to his friends and one always felt much better about problems having had a chat with Bill. He was very proud of his Corps and was tremendously generous in all his relationships. He was a keen historian and medal collector and never spared himself in carrying out research into Corps history and personalities. His death is a sad loss to us all, but he will assuredly be remembered with affection and gratitude by his very many friends both in and outside the Corps. ‘Thine Will be Done.’
The Rose and the Laurel (Journal of the Intelligence Corps),
Volume 9, No.3 December 1975

Additional information from David Hollinshead:
‘The First 100’ were the first regular officers commissioned into the Intelligence Corps. Up until that time, only the WOs and NCOs were badged Intelligence Corps.
