The RNLI saves lives at sea.


Also known as: Andy.

Picture of ANDREW BRUCE.

Andy, my husband, was at sea for all his working life, in the Royal Navy for 35 years serving on submarines and ultimately as an instructor in seagoing crane operations. He was at sea when he first became ill in 2000 and it was the Great Yarmouth Lifeboat crew who bought him safely ashore.

He fought stomach cancer for eight long years until it finally took him on 24th March 2009, aged only 57.

Andy loved the sea, and would be proud to have a fund set up in his memory. I miss him terribly but he leaves behind a legacy of love and many happy memories, God bless you my love,
