Paul (Wilf) Holling 1964-2022

It is with much sadness that we learned of the passing of Paul Holling on Thursday 7th April.  He was 58 and had been ill for some months.

A career matelot in the Ops branch, he served onboard Glasgow down south in 1982.  Among other ships that appear on his Service Records are Newcastle, Upton, Bronnington, Quorn, Iron Duke, Monmouth, Grafton and of course D95.  Very much a family man, he devoted much of his spare time supporting Service causes including the South Atlantic Medal Association 1982, Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal, and Veteran Support groups.

To his wife, Moira and daughters Laura and Emma, we extend our sincere condolences. 

Paul's funeral will be at Portchester Crematorium on Thursday 12th May at 1300 and afterwards at The Good Companion, 2 Eastern Road, Portsmouth, PO3 6ES.

Paul is on the extreme left of this group - taken at Re-union 14 - in happier times
