Former Stokers - Shorty Morris & Gus Chandler

Was informed last night of the deaths of two well known dashing, debonair Dusties ...

WOMTP Gus Chandler & POMTP Shorty Morris.

I served at sea with both of these blokes and knew them most of my life. Both characters in their own right.

Shorty passed away a while ago apparently, Gus just recently. I do not know any details except that Gus was undergoing a minor Op in Hospital and didn't make it through. He had been having a few medical issues for some time.

RIP fellars.
