    Ensign Geoff Little

    It is with much sadness that I have to inform you that Geoff Little [Oldgordon] ‘crossed the bar’ on the 30th May 2018 aged 76.
    Geoff, who joined the RN in 1958 served as a Stoker on the Lowestoft’s first commission and also served in HM Ship’s Protector, Carron and Whitby. On leaving the Navy he was an HGV/Coach driver until retiring in 2006.
    He was one of our initial members back in 2009 and a keen supporter of the Lowestoft Association who attended most of our reunions despite being in poor health for the past few years. Always first to offer to contribute, whether it be to sponsor a bottle of Pusser’s rum for the reunion or a poppy wreath for our NMA tree/plaque, he had a heart of gold combined with his ‘matelot’ sense of humour.
    I will miss our regular chats on Skype when we would ‘swing the lamp’, share a few messdeck type jokes and have a good laugh about people and life in general.
    For many years he was involved in the annual RBL Poppy Appeal in the Norwich area giving many hours of his time and effort organising and collecting donations for this worthwhile cause. He also enjoyed a game of bowls and when he was fit travelled extensively around the UK for tournaments.
    Geoff was a true ‘Oppo’ and it was a great honour and pleasure to have known and served with him.

    RIP Geoff, you will not be forgotten...............Click image for larger version.

    Heald Green Cheshire NOT Greater Manchester!!!
    Good one Ian, very well said, I first met Geoff at the 1st reunion in Chatham, and the first thing he did was buy me a drink and tell me an awful joke, he had a store of those. What a difference between then and the last reunion at Hinckley, but he still told the jokes....RIP Geoff, you will be missed.
