Half MastIt is with so much sadness that I report that Captain Archibald (Archie) Hunter  RFA (Retd)  (member number  0075) Crossed the Bar on Thursday 5th February 2016 aged 85. Notice of this sad event, and very late call was only made possible by someone returning a London Newsletter to the editor and a little detective work be me,

He was cremated at  the Surrey and Sussex Crematorium, (HERE for their website and HERE for a map) the arrangments were made by B C Baker and Sons Funeral Directors (HERE for their website and HERE for a map)

On behalf of the RFA Association I offer sincere condolences to all his family.

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