Captain Peter McCarthy

Just heard that he died on 6th July after a long illness. He later became ordained and I remember him giving a roasting sermon on first MN Day that had several notables a bit embarassed as he slated the government for letting the MN down. A great gentleman.

Captain Peter McCarthy OBE

I have been informed that the funeral of Peter is on 17 July at 1220 at the Stonefall Cemetery, Harrogate followed by a service at Holy Trinity Church Knaresborough. As he was a member of local RNA branch they are attending. Peter was a Falklands Veteran.

He was my Captain in RFA PEARLEAF (1982/83) when I was a first trip Navigator. We enjoyed a fantastic Far East Deployment after the trauma of the Falklands War and he was a true gentlemen to serve under. RIP
