It is extremely pleasing to report that on Thursday, May 11th 2023, the Nigerian Navy paid an official Condolence Visit to the family of the Late Captain James Rawe who served in both the Royal Navy and the Nigerian Navy.
The Naval Defence Advisor to the Nigerian High Commission in the United Kingdom presented sympathy flowers and read out a letter of condolence written by the Chief of Naval Staff, Vice Admiral A.Z. Gambo.
It was a welcome gesture and a fitting tribute to the memory of Captain Rawe who played a significant role in developing the Nigerian Navy in both war and peace.
Captain Rawe passed away last month at the age of 97.
