CPOB Terry Brooke

Post by stones » Tue Sep 03, 2019 12:09 pm

CPOB Terry Brooke passed away last night at 2300 after suffering from a major stroke, last Sat week.

Terry was a former Weapons Mechanic (until July 1981 when the branch was made redundant) who I served with in DERWENT, LONSDALE and also CERBERUS, where we did our POs Course together.

My condolences to his Wife Donna and family.

Terry also served on in Duchess, I was with him 75 - 77 when the Old Girl decommissioned.

Terry was a runner back in the day. I think Jacks will get what I mean :lol:

RIP Terry
