It is with great sadness that I have to inform the Assoc. that our Oppo John Allison crossed the bar on Wednesday 20th November. John and his wife Joan have been members of the Association
since the inception meeting held in the Royal Fleet Club in Devonport 21 years ago, John’s membership number 052 reflects his long membership and commitment to the Assoc. Our thoughts go out to his wife Joan.
May you sail calm waters John.
John's funeral is on Friday 13th December at 1400 at Porchester Crematorium and then afterwards at The Ship on the hard. Please let Joan know 02392602343 so that she can give Matthew (landlord) a rough idea of numbers. Obviously the weather will play a part on the day. It is so long as there is to be a post mortem. Ollie Butler is going to put the details on the RNCCA website so that they will know.
Joan would prefer donations to Help The Heroes. However if anyone wishes to send flowers she in her words "will not be insulted or annoyed". If flowers are sent, send them to the funeral directors address - Ruby Funerals, 2 Stoke Parade, Stoke Road, Gosport, PO12 1QE.
