Onforwarded by Fred House:

Wanting to inform anyone on here who may have known or served with my Dad, POMTP Barry (Lofty) Mathers who served between Nov 1964 and November 1973.

Dad passed away on the 10th March 2022 after a very quick battle with aggressive cancer (8 days) and he is now at rest with Mum – PO Steward Judith Atkinson (now Mathers) who passed in January 2020.

So dearly loved, so sadly missed – with Barry N Judy Mathers

They have served and will not be forgotten.
