Remembering one of our own

Remembering one of our own

It is with a sad heart we pass on this news.

Many of you will remember Pony Moores (CPO MW).

Our former treasurer George Turnbull has taken a phone call from Pony’s wife (Bernadette)  advising of his sad passing.  He died from cancer and had been ill for some time.  As you know, he was a character within the branch and for many years a staunch supporter of the association.  I  have fond memories of him and have enjoyed some lively runs ashore in his company.

Hopefully we will be able to pass details of a memorial to be held later in his name.

Personally I remember Pony very well and served with him on the Minesweeping Trials Team at Portland where he was the PO(MW). We had many a great run ashore and have many fond memories of his wicked sense of humour! Especially when sharing a B&B in Mevagissey in Cornwall, among other trials team jobs!” (webmaster)

    Sad News indeed.
    I remember Pony on the Abdiel in 1983 as the Bosun. He took over from Connie Francis, who ended up drafted to HMY Brittania.
    RIP Pony, sadly another one of the old and bold MW Legends who has crossed the bar.
    Yours aye
