23 Aug 2016 09:30 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Further to our notice of the death on 15th August of SBA Elder Statesman, Peter Hollins MBE, we are now in a position to advise that his funeral will be on THURSDAY 8th September.

A family Committal at Portchester Crematorium will be followed by a Memorial Celebration of Peter's life and achievements at Boathouse no 4 at Portsmouth Dockyard, where family and friends from the various areas of his life are invited to gather at 2.00pm for 2.30, with refreshments to follow.

You are most welcome and if you would like to attend it would be helpful if you could drop a note to either Tim or Christopher Hollins ( or who will be happy to answer questions and can also advise on parking and any special dietary requirements.  

NB: For those who might wish to make a donation in memory of Peter, cheques payable to The Royal Naval Museum would be most welcome, marked S.P.199 on the reverse: these can be sent to Co-operative Funeralcare 147 Stoke Rd, Gosport PO12 1SE.                                                                                                          Mark Rudall

    We would be delighted to welcome all-comers at the memorial celebration in Boathouse No.4 at the Historic Dockyard. The Boathouse houses a wonderful collection of historic naval boats, including RN Steam Cutter 439 (Osborne, of 1897) and RN Steam Cutter 26 (Albert, of 1910). Alongside the Boathouse is HMS Warrior of 1861, in whose restoration our father was also very involved. And of course the dockyard also contains the Mary Rose Museum, Victory, HMS M33 of 1915 and the Museum of the Royal Navy. So if you are coming, you may wish to make a day of it. Tim
