    2/11th Batt WWII P.O.W. wounded in Crete. Much loved brother of Betty and Ted. Henry and Alex (both dec). Always a leader, ever positive and alert to the end of his 99 years. He had a diversity of interests and capabilities including detonating a homemade bomb when younger. A long life well lived. I, with sons Peter, Stephen and Andrew, send deepest sympathy and love to his devoted family in Canberra. Betty.
