Crossed the Bar

It is with so much sadness that I report that Second Officer (Supply) Peter Buckley RFA(Retd)  crossed the bar on Tuesday 24 November 2020 aged 62. Peter was not a member of our Association but was a member of our RFA Family.

Peter’s funeral (Cremation) will take place at a date and time to be decided. Due to COVID restrictions numbers are strictly limited. I have no more information at the moment but will sitrep this page as the arrangements clarify

The funeral arrangements are being made by D Hollowell and Sons, Funeral Directors from their Highfield Road Branch (HERE for their Website and HERE for a map)

Family flowers only but donations, if desired, Should be made to the Trinity Hospice (HERE for their Website and HERE for a map)

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his widow Mariya and son Christopher  and all his family.

If you have any remembrances of Peter please email it to me at and I will post them on this page. Alternatively you can post to our facebook page “RFA Crossed the Bar”. 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.
