Postby Pioneer » Mon Nov 12, 2018 4:14 pm

It is with deep sadness that the London Branch reports that ex-Leading Seaman Douglas Allen WITHEY 'crossed the Bar' on Saturday 10th November 2018.
A long standing member of the former Coastal Forces Veterans Association, bearing the membership number of 1613, he was a crew member of HDML 1387, now more famously known as HMS Medusa.
HDML 1387 is known to have 'marked' the swept channel for the landings on 'Omaha Beach' on 5th and 6th June 1944.
Funeral arrangements for Douglas to follow.
