I regret to inform you that Richard Crossed the Bar on 1st July 2020. He served at sea for 37 years in the engineering department between September 1962 and October 1999 rising through the ranks to Chief Engineer. His first ship being S.S. Zenatia and his last U.K.D Dolphin. Besides being a member of the Barry Branch he was a very active member of the Royal British Legion in Penarth, and the Mayor of Penarth Cllr Mark Wilson and the Penarth Town Council have asked for the flags at the council HQ at West House to be flown at half-mast in tribute to Richard in honour and respect of his devotion to the Legion and the community of Penarth.
