I meant Harman 1972 as he replaced the Coxswain Jack Hunt.

Last met Des at Anzac Day, c. 2019. He was talking to Captain John Stevenson. I assume they had served together long ago. Then met him with his daughter at Tattersall's Club. Took some photos and promised to send them on. Which I did later. Found his address and an item in a local Blacktown or Penrith paper. Des kept fit running and took up social dancing. Feel his AM was also for work among the district's troubled youth. An inspiration.
