Today I was in South West Rocks and visited the cenotaph.
I took a photograph of Barneys plaque and would like to add it to here in his remembrance.
RIP Barney.

Thanks Mal.
Fond memories of the one and only time I met him at Swampee's pub in Sydney near Central Station.
What a determined bloke he was and supported by his incredible wife.
Some things you just don't forget. RIP

Yeah same bone. Met and spent time with Barney and Jan when they both came up for the ANZAC Day run at the Burma-Thailand Railway.

Both good people who would never do you a bad turn.
