ctbIt is with much sadness that  I report that First Officer (S) Paul Monnelly (Member 0737) Crossed the Bar on Friday 21 January  2022 at his home in Estepona aged 75 after a battle with cancer. I have absolutely no more details as yet and will sitrep this page accordingly if and when they become available. My thanks to Rupert Drew for the heads-up. 

I have tried to contact Paul's family without sucess and the London telephone number in the Handbook just rings so any contact details will be be much appreciated. This of course means that I have no funeral detials whether he will be brought home or interred/cremated in Spain.

On behalf of the RFA Association and all Paul's former   shipmates and colleagues  I offer our sincere condolences.

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