About David
his daughter, Daisy-Twinkle.
The family of David said:
"For David, the Army was his life, second only to his daughter. He was the ultimate father and friend to Twinkle, more proud of her than anything else. His devotions were equally divided between his beloved Twinkle and his beloved Regiment, the Royal Dragoon Guards.
"He was an exceptional soldier and loving and devoted parent. He would not have changed his life for anything. David was also a loving son and brother and leaves behind his Mum, sister and extended family as well as his daughter."
This memorial has been created to honour the bravery of David Monkhouse. He died as a hero and will never be forgotten. May he rest in peace.

Although it has been a few years since we were neighbours, I remember you fondly..mostly for telling me off for Twinkle picking up my "farmer slang" but we had many laughs together. You will be missed by many, although by no-one as much as Twinkle. I send her lots of love, and to your family. Rest In Peace David, God Bless xxx

heartfelt condolences to all of David's family, colleagues and friends. May God Bless you all.
Although David and I were friends all too briefly, he leaves a lasting memory and a special place in my heart as a dear friend. When I knew he was going on duty, I was worried and concerned, whilst he was excited and proud. A loving, devoted father, he is a huge loss I'm sure to his family and his beloved fellow guardsmen.
