HUGHES, Thomas. Served on the carrier HMS Courageous, and survived the sinking of two ships.  He spent his life caring for animals, and  established the West Vancouver SPCA. Tom was an active member of RVYC, and one of the founders of the Canadian Marine Environment Protection Society. He will be dearly missed by all the directors.
