Crossed the Bar - PO Tel WE (Wally) Breton DSM

Reported by David Poynder.

PO Tel WE (Wally) Breton DSM died 19th September 2010.

Although I never managed to get Wally to join the RNCA which I tried doing when he was 90 he reckoned he could not keep up with the numerous Association newsletters he already belonged to!
Wally was a very special gent who would never say why he was "mentioned in dispatches" at Dunkirk nor why he was awarded his "DSM" on Russian Convoy PQ18!
He passed away at 1830 on Sunday 19th September aged 95.
I suspect some of our WW2 members may well remember him. His details will be in the November Navy News.
