Shipwright Tom Fisher receives a retirement gift from Captain is Phil Hanton. Ft. Rosalie October-November 2011.1066 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.
