It is with so much sadness I report that Ken Pritchard, former DGST(N) crossed the bar on Thursday 15 October 2015 aged 89.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to Angela, his wife, and their children Anne, Jane, Jonathon and Emma.


Ken’s funeral will be held at St George’s Church, Beckington, (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) on Monday 9th November at 14:30. . Colleagues and shipmates will be made most welcome at  the service and interment. The family will extend an invitation to all attendees for refreshments after the service.

Ken’s family requst that it be family flowers only but when they decide on a suitable charity, donations, in Ken’s name, will be very welcome. (Watch this page for Sitreps).
