Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1 :- Time of funeral

It is with so much sadness I report that Chief Officer (X) Peter John Snelson RFA(Retd) Crossed the Bar on Monday 3rd June 2019 aged 66, after a battle with an Asbestos related illness. He was not a member of our association but was a member of our RFA family.

His  funeral service  followed by cremation is expected to take place on Friday 28th June at 12:00 (Sitrep 1) at the Memorial Woodlands, Bristol (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) old shipmates and colleagues will be most welcome to attend and will be invited to join the family for refreshments afterwards. If you are hoping to attend it would be helpful to liase with the Funeral Directors (see below) for the catering arrangements.

Arangements for Peter’s funeral are being made by L.W. Clutterbuck (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

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