I have found in the latest listings of the "Last Post" forum in the NSW RSL Reveille magazine.

Kinkade, Robert Alexander - R47775
. Mech 1. Did 2 x Gun Line Tours in HMAS Perth and 1 x Escort Trip in HMAS Duchess for Vietnam Service.

White, Thomas Bernard - R47381. CERA. Vietnam Service 8 x Trips HMAS Sydney 68-70 and 1 x Trip in HMAS Duchess 65.

Vale Robert & Thomas :salute1:

I spent some time with Tom White at Creswell and Stalwart. A true gentleman and sad to hear of his demise. I had the privilege of hearing Tom, behind closed doors, ripping strips off Andy Douglas (Lt SDME), and forcing Andy to reverse one of his stupid decisions.

Sorry to hear of Tom crossing the bar, fair winds ol' fella.

Facebook came alive today with the sad news of the passing of Les Dwyer...

Image

This was posted on Facebook by James O'Connor...

"It is with great sadness that I need to inform members that Leslie [Les] James Dwyer crossed the bar today at 15:00. Les served the Association (NAA) as our National President, National Vice
President
, Chairman of White Ensign Magazine, President of eFLEET, Advocate and Welfare Office(r) and Web Master."

I didn't know Les personally, but he was clearly a Legend in many areas, with a wide circle of friends and followers on Facebook.

This was posted on Les' own Facebook Page by his wife, Lynda...


It is with immense sadness I’m informing you that Les Dwyer crossed the bar on 16th August 2018 at 3pm.
Les suffered a major heart trauma on Monday the 13th August 2018 whilst whipper snipping on our property, 36 hours before our planned trip to Shanghai.
Les was treated by the Ambulance Service, Nambour Hospital Emergency Department and Sunshine Coast University Hospital Intensive Care Unit with the utmost care and professional attention.
Despite their best efforts, Les did not regain consciousness after the heart trauma. Prior to this incident Les was healthy, well and looking forward to our trip.

Posted by Les’s beloved wife, Lynda Dwyer.

Funeral arrangements for Les Dwyer.
Gregson & Weight Chapel
34 National Park Road
Nambour QLD 4560

Thursday 23rd August 2018 at 2pm.

Not quite sure how I ended up on Les' list of Facebook friends, but like many of us, I'd been following he and Lynda's many trips overseas and can really say they were living life to the fullest...
...clearly his sudden passing was totally unexpected...

VALE Les, rest on your oars, your journey's done, RIP... [-o<
[-o<

P.S. Les (perhaps prophetically,) posted this :type: thought provoking clip :-k on Facebook on July 10th, updating it with comments posted only four days ago..!

I liked it so much, I went searching (unsuccessfully,) through YouTube for a version I could share with you Guys...

I never knew Les personally, but I did deal with him via the HMAS Sydney website.

I knew he was a busy man, but I didn't realise just how dedicated he was.

My condolences to his wife and family, and he will be sadly missed.

Vale Les :salute1:

VALE: Former Chief Engine Room Artificer and Senior Civilian Instructor at HMAS NIRIMBA, Mr Roy Forsyth... [-o<

Charlie Layzell has passed on some SAD NEWS for many MOBIs and others.

Mr Roy Forsyth, a former Chief Engine Room Artificer and later Senior Civilian Instructor at HMAS NIRIMBA, passed away on
Sunday 13 January 2019. Roy will have been well known to many MOBIs, MECHs, MUPPETs and others who had served at NIRIMBA.

Roy was at NIRIMBA as a CERA when the MOBI training began. He paid off in 1957 and immediately began as a Civilian Instructor in
Fitting and Machining. Roy’s tenure as a Civilian Instructor continued for 30 years until, as a Senior Civilian Instructor, he retired in
1987. A tough but fair man, Roy will be remembered for the knowledge and expertise he passed on to many a trainee, some of whom
may still be in the Navy and many still in the trade and technical workforce (to say little of the many who are now retired).

Roy is survived by his daughter Andrea and son Ross.

Roy’s funeral will be conducted at;
The White Lady Chapel
402 Pennant Hills Road
(near Boundary Road)
PENNANT HILLS NSW
on Tuesday 22nd of January
commencing at 1400.


Rest in Peace Roy, you were well respected and fondly remembered. [-o<
