Received from the Plymouth branch of the Submariners Association Sadly I am the barer of the news of the passing of one of our most esteemed members! Donald (Buckwheat) Harris, in his 80's, was taken into Derriford Hospital , Plymouth , on Monday 4th Feb. He passed away during last night (Tues/Weds). No other details at the present time; but will be forwarded when more is known. Most people will know 'Buckwheat' as a loveable rogue, and a character of characters amongst submariners, (both aged & not so aged), probably best known for his antics; but above all, for his loyalty and dedication to his many Commanding Officers! He will be sadly missed by so many! _____________________________________________________________ I'm sure there are many on the forum that have fond memories of Buckwheat, maybe they will share them. RIP mate the world will be a sadder place without characters like you.
