    Ensign Bill (Jan) Peacock

    We have been informed of the following by Paddy Healy:

    Bill Peacock was the buffer for most of the Far East trip of 74/75 and sadly he passed away in Spain a couple of years ago. I had a good time onboard and have nothing but fond memories of this period, happy days indeed.

    A great man, who could teach anyone, and never let anyone down.
    He had a massive knowledge of seamanship, that I doubt, that they could match in today's surface fleet, he was a kind man who inspired and knew how to laugh and more importantly, when.
    Sadly missed, but not forgotten.
    Sandy.

    A true buffer to the core, who was hard working and honest and rewarded those around him for his efforts.

    I always remember him as a quiet, decent man.

    RIP Bill

    I have good memories of being a member of his buffers party for a while, along with Ginge and Willy.
    Learnt a lot about seamanship including RAS preparation.
