Crossed the Bar

Sitrep 1 An email from Brian’s widow Ivilina

Sitrep 2 Photo update.

It is with much sadness that I pass on this report from Scofe (Ian Schofield-Beevers) that former Radio Officer Brian Robinson has crossed the bar. Apart from this report I have absolutely no more information but will, should it becomes available post it to this page.

Scofe writes:-

“Heard yesterday sad news Big Brian went Silent Key a few days ago.

The source was Facebook and was passed onto me.

He had been living in Bulgaria.”


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

I am Ivilina Aleksieva-Robinson – the wife of Brian Robinson – Radio Officer RFA (RETD). He passed away on 7th of March 2016 in our apartment in Bulgaria. He suffered a cancer (non – Hodgkin’s lymphoma), but being very strong he overcame that disease. Brian died from a massive heart attack, quickly and without pain, according to the autopsy.
I am writing to you to tell you that the time we had together he often spoke about his service in RFA – always with pride and respect.
Thank you for the condolences.

Ivilina Aleksieva – Robinson
