I have just (11 June 2020) received a report from Bob Settle that CPO Roy Richard Thomas RFA Crossed the Bar on the 19th May 2020, his funeral will take place on Friday 12 June 2020 at 11:40 and at Landican Crematorium, in Wirral (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).
I have no further details and will sitrep this page as and when more information becomes available.
Roy was not a member of our Association but was part of the RFA Family and on behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to all his family.
This notice was taken from the Wirral Globe:-
