ctbIt is with so much sadness that I report that Second Officer (E) Derrick (Des) Towl RFA Retd.,  crossed the bar on Wednesday 30th January 2021 aged 76.  Des was not a member of our association but was, of course,  a member of our RFA family.

Des' cremation is expected to take place at the end of next week (that is week beginnning Monday 8th Feb and detals to follow). Arrangement s are being made by Arthur W Bryant Funeral Services, Bude (HERE for their webside and HERE for a map

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

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