Passing of CDR Robert Henry Hawkins MBE RN

Passing of CDR Robert Henry Hawkins MBE RN

We couldn’t have added more to Bob’s passing that has already been so eloquently written by our friend and member Rob Hoole.

Please follow the link to read that:


Bob Hawkins Memorial service.

Bobs funeral will be taking place at Helensburgh Parish Church on Friday 27 October at 1230. The main service, with Naval representation, will be at the church and open to all. This will be followed by a ceremony at the crematorium for family.

Afterwards people in attendance not going to the crematorium will be welcome to the Rosslea Hall Hotel, where we will all arrive later as well after the second part.

I’m sure official news will come out in the Naval channels about the goings on but wanted to get this information out so anyone who wants to pay their respects to my father can plan to attend. There will also be a streamed video feed for anyone unable to attend in person.

Also, for those that cannot travel to Scotland. There is a memorial service for Bob Hawkins at HMS Excellent, to coincide with his funeral at 1230 on Friday 27th.
