The IOBA can help our less fortunate members, so that they are able to attend future Reunions.
In memory of, the above assistance will be now known as ‘The Robert Griffin Award’.
As some people will remember, Robert Griffin was an inspirational Petty Officer & Drum Major, let’s pause and think about a great guy and gave his life for the defence of his country, the best sprit of the Indefatigable, RIP school friend and Brave Royal Marine.
Robert sadly lost his life during the closing days of the Falklands War in 1982 (age 22).
