It is with so much sadness that I announce that Engineer Officer John Burley (Plymouth Branch) Crossed the Bar in his sleep last night (19/20 March) aged 80. He had been unwell for several weeks and was being treated at Derriford. John served in the RFA for a number of years leaving in 1959.


Family Flowers only be request but donations may be made in lieu to St Luke's Hospice Plymouth, HERE.

John was also a loyal Member of the South West Company of Mariners and served upon the Committee for many years during which time (1999 - 2003) he was Hon. Secretary. He will be sadly missed by the Company.

On behalf of the RFA Association I extend our sincere condolences to Mrs Burley and all his family.





If you have a remembrance of John please e-mail me at deputy.chairman@rfa-association.org.uk and I will append it to this page.
