Sitrep 1 Funeral Arrangements

It is with much sadness that  I report that Second Officer Alec Drybourgh RFA (Retd) (not a member but part of our RFA family) Crossed the Bar on Wednesday 27th October 2021 aged 67 after a battle with cancer.

Sitrep1. Alec's funeral will take place on Thursday 18th November 2021 at 10:30 and at Tynemouth Crematorium (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) Old shipmates and colleagues will be most welcome to attend and join the family afterwards for refreshments. Arrangements are being made by Co-op Funeral Directors Wallsend (HERE for their website and HERE for a map).

Family flowers only but donations in lieu, if desired, should be made in Alec's name, to Cancer Research (HERE for their website)

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer sincere condolences to Barbara, his widow, and son Stuart.

If you have any remembrances of Alec 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 Alec  for this piece and the RFA Association Gallery and Archive, if you have one please email it to me.
