This maybe a bit late. But, for those who knew Jamie.

“Good evening Rod,

I had a phone conversation with the brother of Jamie Elgar last weekend who informed me that he had died in October 2016. Jamie joined the RN and the AH branch in Jan 87, serving as a Handler for a few years before transferring to the AC branch. After leaving the RN he embarked on a successfully career in civvy street before his untimely death. A big character with a wry sense of humour, he will be missed by all that new him.

It may be too late to advertise this in the obituaries, but I thought I’d let you know.

RIP Chocks. Fair winds and Safe Harbour.
