    Went to the Requiem Mass for one of our Bolton RNA members yesterday, Phil Turner. Phil was ex RAF and served as a navigator on Lancasters during WW2, he was 94. His wife Kay was Naval nurse during the war and that is how they met. He was lovely man and will be much missed by family and friends.

    RIP Phil and hope you find calm air and smooth flying.

    Just heard that Admiral Jim as he was affectionaly known, crossed the bar on 17 May 2018. One of the first Admirals I met when I was Ships Coy at Raleigh in 79, think he was Cinc Fleet and he came down to do a passing out parade. Another Gentleman gone. RIP Sir

    Never served with Admiral Jim Eberle but attended a few events/dinners when he was CinCFleet/CinCNavhome retiring in 1983 and he seemed very personable and was well thought of by his various staffs etc. I served with his son Peter who retired as a Commodore in 2005.

    RIP Sir.............Click image for larger version.

    Ken Sturdy

    A D-Day veteran who survived the World War II Battle of Dunkirk died in Calgary on 26 Aug.
    Ninety-eight-year-old Ken Sturdy became well-known after being featured on Global News attending the Dunkirk movie premiere in 2017.
    He became emotional watching the film, describing it as a very real depiction of what happened in that 1940 battle when he was a 20-year-old signalman with the Royal Canadian Navy.


    RIP Ken, may you find a safe anchorage.
