Sadly I have to advise that Tom crossed the bar ealy on 2 April 2019 after a long hard fight. Funeral arrangements yet to be advised. Many ex JR's would remeber Tom as their instructor at Leeuwin as a LSUC, POUC and CPOUC. He referred himself as the Underwater Champion. Great sernse of humour and a great Guy.Sincere condolences to Trina and Family on their loss. Fair winds and a following sea on your final vovage Tom. RIP

Very sorry to hear of Toms passing. Served with him on Anzac 1959/60 and met up with him a few years ago in Perth. A great little bloke. Rest in peace Tom. Killer Cowell.
