CTBIt is with much sadness that I report that Second Officer (SE) RFA(Retd) Eric Fisher went Silent Key and crossed the bar on Monday 6th January 2020. Eric was not a member of our Association but was, of course, a member of our RFA family.

Eric's funeral will be held on Tuesday 21 January at 12:00 at Roucan Loch Crematorium (HERE for their Website and HERE for a Map).

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer our sincere condolences to his wife Deborah and all his family

As ever I will update this page as more details become available.

If you have any remembrances of Eric 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 Eric 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).

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.
