Born 12 January, 1930 and died 31 August, 2018. See "SMH" today Tuesday 4 September, 2018. Ex RN submariner who joined the RAN service and he took one of (the first?) O-boats to Australia. c. 1967. Had an adventurous life and as a midshipman was in an attending HM ship involved in the crisis on the Yangtze, 1949 when HMS Amethyst re-joined the fleet. No stranger to the submarine world and his death may have been reported on the SM site?

Neglected to note funeral service details, possibly North Ryde Macquarie Park Delhi Road this week. The SMH site defeated me despite being a subscriber. May have to go to local library and check hard copy on back issue stacks for confirmation. I have since learned letters are now 'white mail!'
