Peter Nelson has reported to us that Surgeon Chief Officer Robert (Bob) Morrow has crossed the bar, very recently. This sad event took place in Spain but his body will be repatriated to UK for his funeral.
I have absolutely no more details other than a conversation with Arun Sharma that Bob was a former Surgeon Commander in the RN and that in his RFA time he served in Resource and Fort Grange/Rosalie in Split.
Our chairman has just emailed me to say that he has been contacted by Jackie Morrow, Bob’s daughter, who has informed him that Bob’s funeral is noon on 27 July at St Mary Church, High Street, Gosport (HERE for their website and HERE for a map). The Co op Funeral directors are handling arrangements.
I have no more information and any help and or photographs will be gratefully received.
On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to Bob's family.

I have been informed by the Royal British Legion (RBL) that new and stricter security arrangements are required at this year's Whitehall Parade on Remembrance Sunday November 13th , hardly surprising really. Whereas in the past I just applied for a tranche of tickets this year there is a requirement to declare by name all participants and that the tickets will be printed with the individual's name on it. This should not affect the usual number of tickets issued (1O) it will require a little administrative effort on our part, and given the amount of applications in total (some 10,000) a lot of administrative effort on the part of RBL
