  • LEACH (David):

    The finest officer I had the pleasure to serve with. He was a "people person" who related easily and genuinely to people at all levels.

    A true officer and gentleman who upheld the finest traditions of the RAN.

  • LEACH (David):

    A gentleman who exhibited modesty in an inverse proportion to his many honours. Long may his achievements be remembered.

  • LEACH (David):

    A wonderful person who loved his family and always had a twinkle in his eye and never missed a trick.

    Once Navy, always Navy.
