It is with great sadness that I have been informed by an 'Undaunted' shipmate that Desmond 'Snowy' Clingham crossed the bar in the early hours of Saturday 29 th June 2013. Snowy served in HMS Undaunted as a PO/TAS from 1971-1974 and was a well respected and very well liked shipmate. 'Snowy' got the ultimate in 'Green rubs' , spending the last 30 odd years of his life in a wheel chair after a an accident involving a seaboat when he was serving as the 'Buffer' in HMS Bristol. Snowy also served in the Falklands war. His strength of character whilst dealing with his disability is an example to us all. Looking back to the good times in the mob, I picture him now sitting in the P.O.'s mess, 'Undaunted' along side the wall in 'Pompey' over a weekend, the RA's having 'scuttled' off - (a Snowy'ism) for 'weekenders', pint of Courage sparkling in hand, the order of business being which pubs we would visit on our forthcoming run ashore that evening, 'big eats' afterwards were we capable! Your out of it now shipper, struggle is over, smooth sailing and a following sea...if anyone deserves it, you most certainly do. Goodbye shipper, never, ever forgotten. RIP oppo.
