Chiu Yiu Nam GM, 1949 - 2012995 viewsOn the 8th June 1982 at Fitzroy CHIU YIU NAM was serving aboard the LSL Sir Galahad when it was attacked by Argentine Skyhawk and Mirage Aircraft. Two bombs scored direct hits.
Within minutes Sir Galahad was burning fiercely and the order was given to abandon ship. Despite the exodus of those about him, seeing the peril of some soldiers trapped by the fire, CHIU chose to
disobey the order. He donned an asbestos suit, knowing that in a conflagration of such fierceness it provided only partial protection, and disappeared into the flames and smoke. He returned with one man and having delivered him safely to the rescuers plunged back into the flames. He continued without regard for his own danger or fatigue, until he had rescued all those he could find still alive.

Shipwright Tom Fisher receives a retirement gift from Captain is Phil Hanton. Ft. Rosalie October-November 2011.854 viewsTom is possibly one of the last shipwrights in the RFA service. He had a very good send off from all the crew. He restrained from withholding the tears. Nothing was to great or to small for Tom to fix. He had a dry sense of humor a well like chippy.

Sadly RFA no longer employs these skilled personnel.
