It is with so much sadness I report that Steward Walter Light Crossed the Bar aged 60 on the 10th January 2017.

Walter’s funeral will be held at  Holy Trinity Church, Bosham (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) at 12:30 on the 1st February 2017. Old shipmates and colleagues will be made most welcome.

Family flowers only please but donations, in Walter’s name, and if desired, should be made to the St Wilfrid’s Hospice (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

The arrangements for the funeral are being made by Cooperative Funeralcare Kingsham Avenue Chichester (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

Shipmates and colleagues attending the funeral will be invited back by the family for refreshments

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his five siblings.
