It is with sad regret I have to inform you of the Death of Roger Newman, Roger served as AN REA1 on the first commission of Coventry\'s deployment, Roger joined as a Tiff apprentice in 1959, he had a fairly short illness (as these things go) but lost his battle last week. his funeral will take place at 1300 at Stafford Crematorium followed by a reception at The Morrisman Pub in Stafford (almost opposite the hospital) feel free to attend if you can\" ........... Thats it! Regards Stuart Turner (Mick Daniels mate)

It is with great sorrow that I have to report the passing of Roger Newman Ex REA1 from the first commission.
his funeral will take place at Stafford crematorium at 1300 on Monday the 2nd March. Family have requested no standards or flowers. donations will be split between the RBL cancer research and Katherine House hospice I believe but that could change. Roger was a member of the Stafford RNA as well as the Coventry Association

Chris & Committee, I have been asked, as shown below, The HMS Coventry Association Standard will also, of course, be more than welcome when the Type 42 Associaton\'s Welsh Standard is blessed on St David\'s Day (1st March) at 1830 hrs at the John Pounds Church in Old Portsmouth.

Do you think we may be able to attend with Our Standard ??.

Yours Aye
