    Ensign Ian Grimes

    We have been informed that Ian Grimes who served in Lowestoft during the 1965-1967 commission sadly 'crossed the bar' on 11th February 2018.

    Ian was a Seaman TAS(UW) who joined the RN at Ganges in 1960. He also served in Vernon, Eastbourne, Repton, Bellerophon, Ganges(ships com), Neptune, Puncheston, Yarnton, Hubberston and left the RN in 1972.

    An early member of the Association, Ian attended almost all of the annual "Jolly Boys" runs ashore at the UJC and thoroughly enjoyed his trips down from South Yorks to 'swing the lamp' with his old chums from 65-67.

    RIP Ian

    RIP Ian Grimes. It was a pleasure to spend time with you at the UJC on a few occasions.
    It is never too late to be what you might have been.
