Dear Bob,

I remember John Calvert; what a nice guy he was.

It is of concern to me that mesothelioma has claimed another of our mates. So many go down with this disease .

I have plural plaque and I guess that many of our type of entry have too.

Every ex-apprentice entry should have a check-up to make sure that they are in the clear.

I grieve for John’s passing.

Kind regards

Some more sad news I am afraid,

John was a year ahead of me at NIRIMBA, we spent over 2 years together in HMAS SUPPLY and in 1977 / 78 he joined me in HMAS DIAMANTINA as the Chief Tiff. A professional and hardworking man who I am sure will be missed by many.

Yours aye

Dear Colleagues and friends,

I received a sad communication from Christine Calvert of Dongara WA to the effect that John died on the 8 December 2018 from Cancer (Mesothelioma) from Asbestos fibres in the lung. It is with a great deal of sadness I relay this to you especially as we just lost Barrie Fraser a couple of weeks or so ago. I shall be writing to Christine to express our condolences and if you wish to do so I can pass along her address.

I shall leave it as that and I am available on:

0458 557-378

07 3385 6766

Your mate
