sitrep 1 Further details.

It is with much sadness that I report that Third Officer (E) RFA(Retd) Michael (Mike) Winfield crossed the bar on Tuesday 10th December 2019 aged 65. Mike was not a member of our Association but was, of course, a member of our RFA family.

His funeral will be held at St Peters Church, West Knighton (Near Dorchester)  on Friday 3rd January at 15:00 (HERE for the website and HERE for a map)  followed by a private cremation Old shipmates and colleagues will be must welcome to attend and to join the family afterwards for refrfeshments.

Family flowers only by request but donations in lieu, and if desired, should be made to the Children’s Society, (HERE for their website), or via the funeral directors (see below)

The arrangements for the funeral are being made by Grassby Funeral Directors, Dorchester (HERE for thir website and HERE for a map)

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife Christine and all his family
