Very sad to report the passing of Dave Turner early on Sunday 14th February in Belgium after a short battle with Cancer. As you will know Dave was an RNCCA stalwart having served a number of years as the Dining Secretary. He will be sadly missed and our thoughts are with Marie-Eve. More details when known will be posted in the members section.
Very sad to report that ‘Charlie’ Madden crossed the bar on 1st January 2021. Charlie was a very well respected member of the Communications branch and there are some very nice tributes to him on the RNCCA facebook page.
Rob has most recently been promoted to Yeoman Gaoler (Second in Command) of the Yeoman Warders at the Tower of London. This is a first for any Naval member of the Yeoman Warders to be selected for promotion to this level. Some of us have been privileged to enjoy the warm hospitability that Rob has extended to the RNCCA in the past including a personal tour of the Tower and Supper in the Mess. I am sure you will wish to join me in congratulating Rob on his wonderful achievement. BZ Rob.
Peter sadly passed away, aged 83, after a lengthy illness at his home in San Diego, California. John Littlefield has summarised his career in an article published in the Crossed the Bar section of the website.
