Just had to show you this from another site, reminds me when Richard Bell Davies, finally went to Haslar in the midd 60 s, and the SBA told me he was on special watch, for him in the end, and what a privilage it was to look after such a great man in the end :cry: :cry: L/T CDR Fred Fredrickson Sadly Fred, Test Pilot, Falklands Sea Harrier hero, CO 800 NAS and most recently sim instructor at Valley, died last week. At the end he was living alone in a care home in Spalding, with only his carer to look after him. Apparently he will be cremated this Friday, with just his carer attending the ceremony as he had no family at the end. Unfortunatly Naval Strike Wing are embarked at the moment, but we are trying our best to ensure that Fred's funeral befits the man that he was. One of the RN QFIs at Valley is the man with the details at the moment, which hopefully we can get on here to try to get a good attendance and flypast at the ceremony and see him off in style. Hopefully someone will post the funeral details here shortly. RIP Fred.
