Donald Thomas Meakin
It is with much sadness that we report the death of Don Meakin who was diagnosed with lung cancer in December last year. Don died peacefully at home on 26th January 2019. His funeral will be held on Tuesday 19th February at St Peter’s Church Titchfield at 10.30am. All friends and colleagues will be welcome
Don joined WSTG in the early 1960s initially working in the Sonar section. The majority of his time in the group was however spent working on Electronic Warfare (EW) equipment. He commissioned both passive and early active EW systems on many new-build ships before moving to DARE Portsdown where he joined the procurement division’s Special Projects section in 1985.
He retired in the mid-1990s. Don was a staunch supporter of the WSTG Reunion group and the picture above was taken at our 2013 Christmas event.
Our condolences are extended to his wife Mary and Family.
