Until I saw this I didn't know that Paul had been fighting cancer and lost the battle. Did our Yeoman's course together and enjoyed many a beer at HARMAN when he was out of the RAN for quite a few years before he re-entered. RIP mate.

Was a great bloke many a drink at the Harman wets when he was working at the tracking station, sad that you never get to have just one
last beer together, always remember him bitching about getting the best and fairest for the football team all he got was a can of Solo and packet
of Smith chips cause someone nicked all the funds, RIP Goody
