1. IT IS WITH GREAT SADNESS THAT I INFORM YOU OF THE PASSING OF REAR ADMIRAL ANDREW JOHN ROBERTSON, AO, DSC, RAN (RETD). REAR ADMIRAL ROBERTSON MADE A SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTION TO NAVY, IN WAR AND IN PEACE, DURING HIS DISTINGUISHED 43 YEAR CAREER, AND IN THE FOUR DECADES SINCE HIS RETIREMENT.

A really nice man. I always enjoyed a chat with him each ANZAC day when he led the SYDNEY contingent. I'm sure he remembered the name of every man he spoke to. Still very sprightly in his 80's and early 90's. He was also patron of TS SYDNEY and loved his visits to Spectacle Island. I was both surprised and gratified when he turned out for my wife's memorial service on the island, very ably organised by the late Ted Wynberg - another one of the good guys gone. Heather was CO of SYDNEY on a couple of occasions. Fair winds and following seas Sir, thank you for your service to our nation and our Navy.
