STILL B. J.

This page is dedicated to the memory of:

Leading Radio Operator (Warfare)

Bernard James Still

HMS Coventry


Back in the mid 1970’s whilst serving on HMS Kent there arrived a young fresh faced JRO. As was always the case he was welcomed onboard in the usual fashion. This was the very young Bernie Still. As the years fade so does the memory, but I can remember him as a young lad who was always laughing and willing to muck in and do his bit. I will always remember him.

I worked with Bernie Still at Commcen Whitehall in 1974. We were on ‘D’ watch together. It was my first posting after joining the Wrens as a Radio Operator. Bernie worked immediately behind me on the morse code circuit in the Ship Room, and I was working on a ‘tape relay’ circuit. I remember him as a lovely quiet unassuming young chap who was a pleasure to work beside. I was very sad to hear of his death on HMS Coventry. I live close to the National Arboretum and every time I visit I go to see his name engraved on the wall and say hello to him. Rest in peace Bernie. You are remembered. Love from,

Jane Vickers
