The following notice was published today in the (Glasgow) Herald:

"Rawlings - John Gillespie, Peacefully at home on Saturday, 5th August, 2006. F.P. Hutchesons Grammar School, Chief Radio Officer with Brocklebank, Cunard Shipping and Philips Medical Systems London. Beloved husband of Marie, dearly loved brother of Jimmy and Renee, respected brother-in-law to Elizabeth, much loved uncle by his nephews and nieces. Funeral service, to which all family, friends and neighbours are respectfully invited at Woodside Crematorium, on Wednesday 16th August at 12 noon. Family Flowers only. Donations may be given to British Heart Foundation."

I didn't meet John during my time with Brocklebank but is is quite likely that he may have been known by other ex-Brocklebank officers who inhabit this site. Our thoughts are with his family at this sad time.
