It is with so much sadness I report that Chief Officer (E) Michael (Mike) Billett RFA(Retd) Crossed the Bar on Saturday 25th February 2019 aged 68, after a short battle with cancer Mike was not a member of our Association but was, of course, part of our RFA Family.

Mike’s funeral will take place at 11:30 at the Margam Crematorium Longland Lane, Port Talbot SA13 2NR, Tel 01639 883570 on Wednesday 6th March and the arrangements are being made by Les Davis & Son Funeral Directors, Neath Funeral home, Main Road, Cadoxton, Neath. SA10 8AP. Tel 01639642945.
Old shipmates and colleagues will be very welcome and those attending the service will be invited to join the family for refreshments afterwards.
On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife Sheryl, son Jamie and all his family.
If you have any remembrances of Mike please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. I am also looking for photographs of Mike for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
