I just wanted to pass on the sad news that Bert passed away peacefully.

The funeral confirmed as being held at Shaw *** Donnington Church, Newbury - 10:00 for 10:30 on 12th May 2015.

He wrote a long poem about his favourite ship, HMS Prins Albert, which is how I came to know about him.

He was, as far as I know, the last of the crew of the 'Lucky Albert'

RIP Bert, fair winds and calm seas.

Regards
