Mike Smith

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Staunch 2MA supporter and our former Shipmate, Mike Smith, on Sunday 5th September, 2021.

Mike was the popular Charge Chief MEA(L) onboard in the late eighties.  He was also President of the CPO's Mess.

Mike had been ill for a while, and both Stevie and I visited him just last Thursday and already he was confined to a Mobility Scooter, had difficulty speaking, and it was extremely difficult to completely understand what he was saying.

His passing did not come as a surprise to us.

When we learn of any funeral details we will forward same.

Mike was an HMS Sheffield survivor, and also served on HMS Exeter.

Rest in Peace, Mike, a real gent, and an astute conversationalist.
