Dear All

It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of a great hockey man, Col Dennis Eagan. Dennis died peacefully on the 3rd July 12 after losing his battle with leukaemia.

It is impossible for me to say what this wonderful man has done for hockey, I guess he has inspired most of you as much as he has inspired me and I never pass his Helsinki Olympic hockey picture in the Army pavilion without a quick look at what the Services and Dennis in particular has done for hockey across the board and how he remained
engaged driving us on right up to the end.

Simon has passed me brief arrangements for the service, it is on the 17th July 12, 1400hrs at RMAS. With great disappointment I personally will not be able to attend as I am teaching young Army Scholars on a day - skipper/competent crew course and will be at sea 16-23 July and I'm sure - Dennis would not have approved it if I let these young folk down. I will be thinking about him.

Any further news from the office will be passed on promptly. I have asked Simon if flowers or donations would be appropriate.
