Remembering the RMS- what the people are saying

Leigh Richards- A message to all who has served on the RMS you have made us proud no matter what nationality you are as you served our island on this ship over her years but a special moment that we as Saints can raise a glass to are the professionalism & dedication of the 3 successful Saint Captains Adam, Andrew & Rodney who has done extremely well for their island during the time the RMS served our island.

Monica Constantine- Captain Adam Williams has made all our Sainnts so proud…..tougher than the rest matexxxx and to all our saints who has done a brilliant job on RMS St Helena she will be sorely miss from her home land

Dorothy Edson- ‘I am sure that as Saints we all have our own thoughts and memories today, of our Beloved RMS but I particularly, feel I want to give a mention to another childhood friend of Saints and that’s our former beloved Captain Rodney Young I know he is in the loop in spirit with these celebrations as he was a smart man and didn’t miss much. RIP Rodney, my friend, you will always be remembered as St Helena’s favorite Captain whether the RMS is sailing or not. xxx 

Jill Flagg-Young- Thanks all yes I know he will have been very proud to know that his other woman the RMS got a good send off as indeed he did a year ago yesterday. His memory and that of the RMS will live on in the lives of St Helenians.
