Lest we forget an Oppo


21 Aug 1997


David suffered with a cancerous brain tumour, and added to the concuction of drugs that he was taken caused further complications which added to his passing. It is nice to know that his family have found our roll of honour and were pleased to see him included they sent this photo of him which they asked to be included.

Memories of David Gratton


David Addis

Yet another good man crossed the Bar. I have good memories of David when I was MACCO in HMS Nelson and he was a member of my staff and we lived quite close in Fareham.
David was a very professional Regulator and a great team member both in the office and when we took part in the Lunch Time volley ball and indoor cricket competions which if my memory serves me well we won a trophy.
A sad day when I read of David crossing the bar.
