Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1, Correction to name.

It is with so much sadness that I report that PO(E) Peter Richard Stephenson RFA(Rtd) crossed the bar on the 27th February 2017 aged 73. Peter was not a member of our Association but he was part of the RFA family.

His funeral will be held on 14th March at 1400 Torbay Crematorium, Hele Rd, Torquay TQ2 7QG (HERE for their website and HERE for a map). and will be organised by Co-op Funeral Care, (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).

Family flowers only but donations, if desired, and in Peter’s name should be made to Rowcroft Hospice, (HERE for their  website and for a map)

Old shipmates and colleagues will be most welcome to attend and attendees wil be invited back by the family for refreshments.


Mike was not a member of the Association so I have no more details but should any become available I will post them to this page.

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


If you have any remembrances of Peter please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. I am also looking for photographs of Peter for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, If you have one please email it to me.
