Victor George James MERRYWEATHER, R42701. DOB - 21 Dec 1946.

He did his Vietnam service in HMAS Stuart in 67 & 68.

I never had the pleasure, but sorry to hear of another MOBI crossing the bar.

RIP Vic :salute1:

Sad to hear. Never served with Vic other than Nirimba, but I recall him as a nice guy.
RIP Vic, fair winds and following seas.

Begin forwarded message: :evil3:

It is sad to see that Vic has left us. I last saw Vic in 2006 when I pulled into a caravan park somewhere near Elliston in South Ozz. I had a MOBI sign on the back of my caravan and two guys were closely observing it as I arrived. They sauntered over and questioned me as to what I knew about MOBI. My reply was that if they were asking the question then they too must be MOBIs. Vic Merryweather and his mate Blue Walker, both of the same intake, were camped at the park along with their wives. I had seen neither since I left NIRIMBA in 1963!! We ended up with a nice evening together in the caravan park. Well remembered.

Vic and wife Margret were serial offenders at our bi-annual term reunions - great company - always good company around the log fires I always remember the first time I met him for ages, at a reunion, and on entering their caravan the seat lid was raised and lo-and-behold there was half of sth Australias 'brewery stock waiting for us. Wot a good bloke. Our next reunion will definitely miss your smile and witty / pithy conversation

regards
DJ
