Thomas Peter Breuilly

Also known as: Tom.

Tom joined the Royal Navy when he was 16 years old and became a Fleet Air Arm photoographer. He served on HMS Eagle and HMS Fearless and also served a short time off the Icelandic coast during the Cod War. He spent two years in Hong Kong and was stationed in Portsmouth, Losiemouth and RAF Cosford, where he was a tri-service instructor. Tom left the navy after 26 years, as a Chief Petty Officer and was awarded the BEM for his services with the Multinational Force and Observers based in the Sinai Dessert. After leaving the navy Tom joined the Prison Service and worked as the Fire Officer at HMYOI Stoke Heath, in Shropshire. Sadly Tom died at the premature age of 59. In accordance with his wishes his ashes were scattered at sea by the Conwy lifeboat in May 2009. He is survived by his wife, Theresa and son, John.
