    At our RNA meetings we always do the Exhortation before we start and I always ask members to spare a moment for absent friends, this morning I mentioned Admiral Treacher in my Little Eulogy.

    Sad news indeed. However, a life lived to the full. Rest in peace.

    JD Treacher

    My first seagoing skipper on Lowie 1965, what a gentleman, met up again on the Eagle's last commission when he was Flag Officer Carriers and Amphibious Ships (FOCAS) and I was a lowly LREM on the 984 Radar.
    He will be sadly Missed.

    Only spoke to him and his wife at the reunions, but a really nice guy. I remember his first speech at Chatham, quite and eye opener.

    RIP
