Heard today he is not well and turned in. Originally from Tasmania but not sure where he is at now. Last saw him a decade ago at an FAA reunion.

Not so. I last saw him at an SL 1966 reunion at Gunroom Cerberus in 2016 at 50. He spoke of the rose garden and the steps needed to prune them OK.

AEC rolls say he was living in East (or New) Gisborne, Victoria? Was it 121 Ballinger Street? Or now at a local nursing home? Hang in there Charlie.

Overtaken by events, see the Vale section which reports his sad demise this month. He was of the right stuff. May be now on the FAA site too?
