The Last Watch Bill

 

 

Could members please ensure that your email addresses are up to date if you are unable to edit your

profile on your membership page please notify me & I will do it.

 

 

The people listed below have passed on & wont have to 'blow soot' any more. Fair winds & gentle seas, we know you have gone to a better place because you have already done your watch in hell.

Please only send me details of deceased engineering personnel that you have first hand knowledge of their passing.

Names of deceased members will still be held within the membership section but they will be marked as "Deceased", their email addresses wont be available, nor will their telephone numbers & home addresses.

The listing below is in alphabetical order, except for the people who died on KUTTABUL (WW2), WESTRALIA, & VOYAGER, I think they deserve to be in a group of their own, & can be found at the bottom of the list.


Thanks to Kevin Assenheim for filling in many gaps that were missing from the MOBI ranks.
