WOMTP Ralph (Spookie) SPOONER 

    It is with regret I report the passing of ex-WOMTP Ralph (Spookie) Spooner at 1930 Thursday 17th May 2001, after
 a 6 month battle with brain cancer. 

    Ralph served between 1954 and 1986. WARRUMUNGA, KIMBLA, SUPPLY, MELBOURNE etc., were some of 
Ralph’s sea billets. During the latter part of his career he was Engineering Branch Divisional Officer in MELBOURNE.
 His last posting was Divisional Officer at the Junior Recruit School WA. Ralph’s wife Helen will be better known to 
sailors as the one time editor of WIFELINE in Navy News. 

    Ralph was an active member of the naval family and got involved in the recent FESR campaign.
