Hymn for Colin was composed in memory of Leading Seaman Colin Hughes, who was tragically taken from us in September 2012.

The music is loosely based on the theme to the TV series The Watermill, which Colin used to perform as a solo on his instrument, the oboe. Towards the end of the piece, there is also reference to the Naval Hymn Eternal Father reflecting on Colin's Naval background, both within the Royal Marines and the Royal Australian Navy.

Rest in peace mate, you are sorely missed!
