I was so sorry to read of the passing of Tim Surplice ex Assistant Keeper in the latest edition of the Trinity House "Flash" magazine. Tim passed away on 04/01/2017 aged 58.
Tim served 15 years in the service. I remember meeting up with Tim on Lundy South, he was a very likeable lad and it was a pleasure to have worked with him. Tim RIP.
I endorse every word written by Neil regarding Tim Surplice.I met him when he came to Needles for a month,he was very easy to get along with and had likeable sharp wit about him.
A pleasure to have known you Tim
