    Rick Jolly was the Medical Officer when I was the Office Manager at Plymouth Royal Navy Recruiting Office between 2001-2004 and I was in contact with him every weekday. He was a true gentleman and great company. I will never forget the kindness he showed to me when my younger brother (ex RN) died age 50 suddenly in January 2004. I last saw Rick at at a WO1 RM retirement party in Guzz in 2007. To say I'm gutted is an understatement and he deserved much more than the OBE he was awarded. RIP Sir - you will be sadly missed.

    Lovely words Warwick, my brother, a POMA worked with him in the Falklands and he always spoke highly of him too.

    Funeral of Captain Rick Jolly OBE

    I had the honour and privilege to attend the funeral of Captain Rick Jolly at HMS Raleigh yesterday. The numbers were restricted to 550 people and it was a wonderful service and a fitting send-off to such a brilliant surgeon and wonderful person. Unfortunately the fly past afterwards was cancelled because of the bad weather. The young Raleigh trainees who acted as hosts, guides and all the other tasks required yesterday afternoon were a credit to the Royal Navy.

    Wish I could have been there Warwick, and glad that Captain Jolly got a good send off.

    I have just received the sad news that Shipmate Bill Brown one of our members at Bolton RNA has "Crossed the Bar". Bill was 92 and served in the RN as a "Bunting Tosser" on HMS Indomitable in WW2. Bill didn't talk much about the war but he was always proud to say that he was present at the signing of the Japanese surrender. He once showed me a photo of it and you can just make him out in the background. RIP Bill. watch done and I know you will be happy now to be back with your beloved Peggy.
