It is with so much sadness that I very belatedly announce that Maurice Cocker, Member 657  (Midlands Branch) Crossed the Bar on the 26 May 2012 aged 79.

On behalf of the RFA Association I extend our sincere condolences to his widow Pauline and their family.

Maurice, a former Lieutenant in the Royal Navy was a military historian and prolific author specialising in Naval History, his titles include:-

Destroyers of the Royal Navy, 1893-1981 by (Sep 1981)
Observer's Directory of Royal Naval Submarines, 1901-82 by  (11 Nov 1982)
Frigates, Sloops and Patrol Vessels of the Royal Navy, 1900 to Date (Mar 1985)
Mine Warfare of the Royal Navy 1908 to Date (Jul 1993
Frigates, Sloops and Patrol Vessels of the Royal Navy, 1900 to Date (Mar 1985)

Royal Naval Submarines, 1901 - Present (24 Jul 2008)

West Coast Support Group is of particular interest as it has a quite detailed account of the RFA's participation in the Korean War.
