Received the following e-mail :evil3: from Bruce 'Connie' Francis... :evil3:

Hi Rick,

Seen this on the HMAS Vampire FB page, not sure if you or any of the other on Skilled Hands have seen it. It was posted by Ian Crowe.

"It is with sadness that I advise that old MOBI mate Richard (Dick) Galloway crossed the bar on Tuesday morning at 3:03am.
Dick has had a long 20 year battle with Parkinson’s Disease and lost his brave fight with family beside him.
Dick spent a few years on the Bat in the early 70’s before moving over to the submarine life. RIP old buddy.
A service for Dick will be in Lithgow at the end of next week and friends are all invited.

Ian Crowe"

Cheers

Connie

:happy: Thanks for the 'heads-up' Connie... My initial checking in Chapter 31 (Intake Lists) of 'Skilled Hands At Sea' in our RAN SH Library
produced a listing for AA Galloway as a Member of the 4th MOBI Intake of January '58, which I presumed was Richard, albeit the initials
of AA didn't correspond, something not all that uncommon with earlier print runs of the book... :roll:

But then to add to my confusion, I found an RR Galloway as a Member of the 25th MOBI Intake of July, '68, whose initials did match, so I
must assume that this is the Richard 'Dick' Galloway referred to by Ian Crowe (in the same Intake,) in the HMAS Vampire FB page, which
puts him in his mid-to-late 60's, another MOBI taken too young... [-o<

:-k Hopefully some of our Members can shed more light on the life of Richard 'Dick' Galloway..?

I checked the DVA Nominal Roll and found a Richard Raymond Galloway R105449 who did an escort trip in HMAS Vampire to Vietnam in 1972, as an SAW3.

RIP Richard :salute1:

The following e-mail :evil3: is circulating via Bob Mummery's MOBI Mail Network...

From: Tony Vine <tony.vine@hotmail.com>
Sent: Monday, 5 April 2021 11:59 AM
To: Bob Mummery <bandi@iinet.net.au>
Subject: Passing of Dick Galloway July 1968 intake.

Bob

I have just been advised that Richard (Dick) Raymond Galloway R105499 of the July 1968 passed away recently : no other details known.

Dick commissioned Otama with me in April 1978, at which time he was a POETS. He was the SAW in our crew. From memory he got his buttons on our way home to Australia and left the boat and paid off not long after we arrived home in December 78.

A lovely cheeky bloke who was the life and soul of the party.

He was living somewhere in WA

Regards

Tony Vine

Yes Dick was part of that stellar group of the 25th MOBI Intake... :kenoath: :shithot: :fantastic:

Dick was a fairly quiet sort of guy but had a great sense of humour and was an all round nice guy. Definitely taken way too early and many years of suffering... :bugger:

Rest In Peace Dick... :tear: :tear: :tear:
