It is with so much sadness that I report that SG1A Reginald Peter Pearce  RFA (Retd), Not a member but part of our RFA family, Crossed the Bar on Saturday 2nd October 2021 aged 88 at his home in Plymouth. Many thanks to Richard Walker for the heads up.

The arrangements for Reginalds funeral have not been made yet but his daughter Sharon will contact me when they are finalised

Old colleagues and shipmates are welcome to attend and will be invited to join the family for refreshments afterwards,

No flowers at Reg’s specific request but donations in lieu and if desired should be made, in Reg’s name, to St Lukes Hospice and or the Merchant Navy Association.
