Vale POMTH3 Brenton Donnelly, passed away last Monday, 27th January 2020.

Brenton was part of the January 1971 intake, and was also part of my Reconstruction Team in Darwin, 1976. We lived in the same house on the Coonawarra patch, and we had some of the most epic parties possible both in the house and at the Berrimah Black bar.

Funeral tomorrow Monday 11:30, 47-49 Pinjarra Rd Mandurah , then Sth Mandurah Football Club.

Fair winds and a following sea, Brenton.

I never had the pleasure of ever meeting Brenton, an very sad to loose a MOBI so young.

RIP Brenton :salute1:

Did not know Brenton either despite him apparently only living 30mins or so away.
RIP Brenton.
