Sitrep 1, Funeral arrangements,

It is with so much sadness I report that Captain(E) Michael (Mike) Medlicott RFA(Retd) (Seen here on the left with Brian Waters)crossed the bar on Monday 14th December 2015 (Corrected) aged 76.

Mike’s funeral will take place on Friday 8th January 2015. Following a private cremation there will be a Memorial Service at St Mary The Virgin church in Bransgore (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) at 14:00. Shipmates and colleagues will be most welcome to attend and attendees at the Memorial Service will be invited to refreshments afterwards


Family flowers only but donations, in Mike’s name, can be made to Julia’s House a Dorset Hospice Charity which supports children with life limiting illnesses and their families, (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).

Funeral arrangements are being made by W Smith and Son, Bransgore (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife, Carol, and all his family.
