Crossed the Bar

It is with much sadness that I belatedly report that Captain(E) David (Puffer) Pelton RFA(Retd) died on Thursday 29th October 2019 aged 78. Dave was not a member of our Association but was, of course, a member of our RFA family. My thanks to Brian Girling (Member 0385). for the report

Dave’s funeral was held on Friday 15th November 2019 at Wessex Vale Crematorium (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) with the arrangements made by Johnathan Terry, Funeral Directors (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) at their London Road Office.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences all his family, he never married.

As ever I will update this page should more details become available.

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