Rodney Helme



Pay Respect

Major (Retd) Rodney Helme, Royal Marines


It is with great sadness that I inform the wider Army Aviation family of the death of Major (Retd) Rodney Helme who died

peacefully at home on Saturday 6th December 2014.


He was a long standing pilot, originally trained by the Army Air Corps, attending various courses at Middle Wallop, flying the Chipmunk, Sioux, and

then later the Gazelle. As a Royal Marine, Major Helme served in the Middle and Far East, Malta, Falklands, Germany and various locations

in the United Kingdom including Northern Ireland.


Our thoughts are with his wife Ann, son and daughter and their family. Funeral details are yet to be confirmed.
