    Congratulations Fleet Admiral Rick Newby๐Ÿ‘
    Welcome to the NATO Rank OF-10 group.
    Attached are your new insignia and Command Flag.
    Fly the flag from the top mast with pride - but ONLY when on board.
    Keep up the good work - you have some 'big shoes' to fill.
    Regards, FLEET๐Ÿ˜Ž

    For Nerys, and Alice:-

    Do not go gentle into that good night
    Dylan Thomas

    Do not go gentle into that good night,
    Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
    Because their words had forked no lightning they
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
    Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
    And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
    Do not go gentle into that good night.

    Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
    Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

    And you, my Alice, there on the sad height,
    Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
    Do not go gentle into that good night.
    Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
    Young at heart ๐Ÿ˜‰ Slightly older in other places.๐Ÿ˜Š Cheers Doug

    0900 today our tiny hamlet was rocked by a 21 gun salute by members of the armed forces who were on our local range. The officer in charge did it as a favour to me, when I asked for quiet moment and explained why, he said let's give her a proper farewell.
    Three cheers for our armed services, and Three more for Fleet Admiral Nerys.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    A sad day but joyful day for you Alice in remembering all the good memories you have together.
    My memories are only from her words of encouragement and guidance which over the years have meant a lot.
    Thoughts and prayers are with you.

    Hi:
    I have just heard that Nerys passed away... I did not know him personally, but he always had a word of encouragement, support and help. Rest in peace,Nerys.
    Main principle: if it is not broken - don't repair It!

    Farewell dearest Nerys I will miss you dearly,
    Twilight and evening bell,
    And after that the dark!
    And may there be no sadness of farewell,
    When I embark;
    For though from out our bourne of Time and Place
    The flood may bear me far,
    I hope to see my Pilot face to face
    When I have crossed the bar."
    God speed dear friend.
    Colin and Caroline.
    Fair winds and calm waters, COLIN.

    Alice, there will be kind thoughts of Nerys winging their way over the Atlantic to you. Nerys was known all over!
    Take care, and God Bless.

    At 10am sharp Munich time I shall raise a glass of my finest rum in final salute to our esteemed shipmate Nerys;
    Fleet Admiral,
    Commander Bristol Channel & S Western Approaches Squadrons,
    and CIC SW England Regional Command,
    Founder and Commander MBW WRENS.
    Former Thames Barge Captain and Authority on their construction and operation.
    She leaves a legacy of large boots to be filled.
    We will long remember her.
    Doug.
