PRINCE MICHAEL OF KENT ON THE BRIDGE OF EAST SUSSEX 1 IN SOVEREIGN HARBOUR WITH ENGINEERING
OFFICER, TOM BLOORE.
It was with great sadness that we learnt of the recent death of Tom Bloore, a long
time member of the Unit and Area Engineering Officer.

On Wednesday 8 June Greg Darby, Eddie Oades and I travelled to Barnstaple, Devon,
for the cremation service of Tom Bloore (Engineering Officer RNXS and MVS) and coastguard
in the Bexhill Company.
Tom was a close friend to each of us and his engineering expertise was greatly respected
by all. Over the years Tom sailed as my chief engineer on numerous occasions. Throughout
that time there was never a problem that Tom could not solve and it was always reassuring
to have him aboard.
He will always be remembered for his cheerfulness, friendship and dedication by those
of us who served with him in the RNXS and MVS.
It was a privilege for us to be present at Tom’s cremation service; to meet Lizzie
and the family again and to be able to convey the condolences of all those not able
to be present on the day.
With many fond memories of a good friend and colleague.
