Baz “Buzz” Bates – RIP

I have just received the news from Gail, that Buzz Crossed the Bar last evening after suffering a massive heart attack.
Buzz served in the Branch from 1966 – 1985.

More details as I receive them.

I was on 1’s Course and worked on the Fire Pits with Buzz, always game for a laugh and as Cornish as they come.
God bless old friend.
