Gentlemen, I have just learned that an old friend of mine has crossed the bar in Canada. I don’t know if he was a member of the association but I knew him as Navair AH3 Marty(Taff) Roath. I am sorry that I have no further details

Hi Swede,
just a quick line to let you know that Taff Roath passed away on 12 April, two days ago. He wasn`t a member of the assoc` as you know but looked on the net occasionally and that`s how he found out I was trying to contact him. He was in touch with Tom Nolan as well so you may already know of his passing from Tom.
We last saw each other in August `66 when we left the Eagle which is fifty years ago this year and hoped to meet up sometime to swing the lamp, but he went to live in Canada in the eighties and only came across the water now and again.
Anyway it`s thanks to the association that we did get to communicate during the last couple of years of his life.

RIP Taff
