Alan Playford (PWSTS 1958)
1943 - 2006
It is with deep regret we announce that Alan Playford has crossed the bar. He left us on the 16th November 2006 after a brave battle with cancer.
Alan attended the 2005 reunion with his wife Jenny and helped raise funds by selling memorabilia. He later laid the PWSTS wreath at the MN Memorial Service at Tower Hill and was our standard bearer for this year’s service.
Alan raised thousands of pounds for local charities and he will be missed by all his ship mates, family and friends.
thoughts are with Jenny, their daughters Debbie, Wendy, Julie, their
grandchildren and the rest of the family.
Alan's funeral was held at St Mary's Walton Church near Felixstowe at 12:00 hrs on Thursday the 30th November. The service was conducted by his friend B&ISS Reverend Ken Martin. PWSTS Standard Bearer in attendance Roger Head (PWSTS 1958).
