Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1,Funeral Arrangements

It is with much sadness that I report that Captain Paul Whyte MBE RFA(Retd) (membership number 0201) crossed the bar on 19th November 2019 aged 63.

Paul’s funeral will be held at 10:00 on Friday 6th December 2019 at St Johns RC Church Trowbridge (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) followed by a private interrment. Old shipmates and collegues will be made very welcome at the service and to join the family afterwards for refreshments.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife Marie, children Chris, Samantha, Charlotte, Kathryn and 11 grandchildren.

Family flowers only, donations in lieu and if desired should be made to the RNLI (HERE for their website) and or Cancer Research (HERE for their website). A collection, co-ordinated by the funeral directors (see below) will be taken after the service.

The arrangements are being made by Arthur Mays Funeral Directors, Westbury. (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

If you have any remembrances of Paul please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. Alternatively you can post to our facebook page “RFA Crosed the Bar”. I am also looking for photographs of Paul for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
