Several members of the association attended the service held in the Historic Chelsea Old Church in London on Friday 24th January 2014.

The church was filled to overflowing as you would expect for such a well loved and respected man as Tim. The moving but humorous service was conducted by The Reverend Canon David Reindorp TD, the vicar of Chelsea Old Church. There were some good old hymns including the Naval Hymn, Eternal Father.

A very humorous tribute was given by an old Naval Colleague of Tim’s, Jonathon Cooke. Association members attending were:

Admiral, The Lord West
Andrew & Julia Gordon Lennox
Ken & Janice Bonning
Jim & Kaye Watts
Geoff & Penny Bye
Tony Ray

After the service a reception was held where several other members of the congregation remarked on our Association Ties. There were several Photos of Tim displayed and in pride of place was the 25th anniversary photo of him with his “boys” of the WE department in the 25th anniversary, commemorative silver frame.
