It is with regret that I advise all personnel that Retired Senior Station Officer Roy TUCKNOTT (Reg No 2422) passed away yesterday, 28 March 2012, after a lengthy battle with illness.
Roy joined the MFB on 8 March 1968 and retired on 26 August 1988 after serving the Brigade and the Community for over 20 years. After serving at FS 10, Roy was promoted to Station Officer and transferred to Northern District where he served, on “A” Platoon, at FS 11 and FS 6. After several years he transferred to the Training College where he worked on many Recruit Courses and later, as a Senior Station Officer, he managed the Promotions Department until his retirement. He was always proud of the fact that many of the recruits he had trained went on to complete Officer promotional courses, run by him, later in their careers.
