Sitrep 2 Correction to Funeral Time and photograph

It is with so much sadness I report that Petty Officer Anthony (Ben) Calcutt RFA(Retd), member 0197, Crossed the Bar on Thursday 11 July 2019 aged 65, after a long battle with illness.

His  funeral service  followed by interment will take place at 11:30 onThursday 25th July 2019  at Weston Mill Cemetery, Plymouth (HERE for their website and HERE for a Map). Old shipmates and colleagues will be most welcome to attend and will be invited to join the family for refreshments afterwards. If you are hoping to Ben Calcuttattend it would be helpful to liase with the Funeral Directors (see below) for the catering arrangements. I have also been informed by Richard Walker the 2 Standards will be paraded at the funeral.

The funeral arrangements are being made by Walter C Parsons (HERE for their website and HERE for a Map)

As usual this page will be sitreped as the arrangements are clarified

 On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to all his family.

If you have any remembrances of Ben please email it to me at captain.pat@rfa-association.org.uk and I will post them on this page. I am also looking for photographs of Ben for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.

The RFAA Offices in the Semaphore Tower have been re-assigned to BAE Systems and our Archive and registered Charity Office have been moved to

Room 15
Building 1/078
Stony Lane
PP 15
HM Naval Base
Portsmouth
PO1 3NH

The address is our archive location and the official Charity address.  This address will be infrequently checked for mail and all correspondence should be directed to our home addresses as appropriate.

I have been promised some photographs which I will add to this page when received.

The new property remains within the secure area of the Dockyard, which is a pain but on the bright side it is very inexpensive.

The RFA Reunion 2019 will be held at the Radison Blu Hotel Durham on 11th May 2019 and I would suggest that you book your room in the Radison Blu soon as I am told they are filling up. I booked today (23 Oct) and I was quoted £145 for a double occupancy room for 1 night and £9 parking for 24 Hours.

The Radison Blu Durham.

Have as shufti HERE for their website with all their contact details and also details about the rooms other facilities etc and HERE for a map which does show the location of the Radison Blu and other hotels close by.

Durham Taxis have fare calculator (have a shufti HERE) and according to this the fare from Durham Railway station to the Radison Blu should be about £3.60 (don't quote me)

As more details become available regarding the Reunion and of course the AGM I will post it to this page.
