Subject: Jak Cuttle



Morning Bob,



It is with sadness that I wish to inform you that Ian (Jak) Cuttle passed away on Sunday 23rd February 2020. I would be most grateful if you would pass this information onto his friends in your group.



His funeral will be at 2.00pm on Tuesday 3rd March 2020 at St Matthias Anglican Church, Cardwell Street Bombala followed by a celebration of his life at the Bombala Golf Club.



Thank you so much.



Christine Cuttle (Jak's wife)

A story about Jak and his Datsuns....

As an aside, Jak was in the Chippies Workshop at Nirimba when I started there as a civvy instructor. Along with Harry Harman and Brian McKenzie. Jak left the shop not long afterwards and moved over to Training Development at Nirimba.

I bought a Datsun 1200 Coupe from Jak, a great car but a tad 'repaired' in the body. Jak's wife had named it Rodney :lol1: , and it was painted Telecom orange.

After I repaired the body I resprayed it the same orange, and added white panels. When I rolled it out of the spray booth .. er.. *cough* .. fibreglass trimming booth ... , there it sat in the sunshine and it looked all the world like a bloody can of Fanta!! :swear1: :banghead:

So, from that day forth it became known as The Flying Fanta Can! Thanks to Jak, it went as well as it looked! :grin:

Farewell Jak. I served with Jak a few times, can't remember exactly where, definitely on the Sydney and Stalwart. My long term memory is not as sharp as Seejay's.

Fair winds and smooth seas matey.
