Half Mast 1

Sitrep 1. Corrections (italic)

It is with so much sadness that I report, belatedly, that Chief Officer(E) David (Dave) Pendlebury  RFA(Retd) crossed the bar on Friday 10th July 2020 aged 60.

Dave, who lived on the Orcadian Island of Sanday (HERE for map) was cremated on Monday 13th July 2020 at the Inverness Crematorium (HERE for their website and HERE for a map), the arrangements having been made by John G. Corse of Kirkwall (HERE for their website and HERE for a map). Dave's ashes will be returned to Sanday and his final resting place

Dave was not a member of our Association but was, of course, a part of the extended RFA Family.

I have no more information at the moment but will, of course, sitrep this page with any updates.

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his fiancée Bridget Sinclair and all his family, there were no children.

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

CHAIR’S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE

Christmas is fast approaching…and it starts too early, but that’s just my view! The Association branches have been busy throughout the year. Mostly with the very important social occasions, but also at the various memorials around the country and not forgetting an excellent Reunion Dinner.

The Trustees have continued to meet as required by our constitution. The most recent one centrally held in Birmingham. An eventful travelling day, having picked the one day the tracks were flooded. However, the required business was achieved, including a review of our policies. These new and updated documents will be posted to our website once they’ve been ‘topped and tailed’. A list of these documents will be included in the annual mailing (sent out at the end of February).
