Colin Olden

Colin was a good friend, respected colleague and mentor over very many years.

both at Hamble Lifeboat and as a member of Hill Head Coastguard Rescue Team. 


He was the best Coxswain I ever served with, his blind navigation was legendry, he could find his way even in the thickest of fog.  He was a brilliant practical engineer who could analyse a problem and solve it quickly and effectively which was perfect when dealing with rescue situations.


Although his sense of humour got us both into trouble on more than one occasion.


Fair winds and smooth seas Colin.





Thank you Colin for your kindness, for sharing so many funny stories and for your wonderful sense of humour.  Wherever you went laughter and smiles followed.


Rest well now Colin.



Ken & Joan Pink
